This comes from long time friend of MotoringFile and owner of Outmotoring Aaron Cornaby:
We just got some of the saddest news in recent MINI history. It seems the famous and very popular Parcel Tray is now extinct with no plans of revival as far as our sources at MINIusa have described. We were told that last week that we would be getting a large shipment to fill all of our backorders but after following up found that the part number was removed from the MINI USA part number database with a note “not for USA sales”. MINI supply chain sources said there are no plans for replacing or re-releasing it for the US but may be available in other countries.

However it’s fairly limited as only one dealer that we know of has stock at the moment. But don’t worry, we have information below on not only how to get one but how to get one at a discount. But before we get into all that, here’s the official description from an internal MINI document:

As a new monthly feature for 2006 we’re going to be highlighting special deals offered to MotoringFile readers by our advertisers. Here’s our first:
The fine folks at Knauz MINI have another special for MotoringFile readers. This time they’re looking to blow-out a few in-stock aero kits. They have both MC and MCS kits in stock (without PDC) and are offering them to MF readers installed and painted for only $1500. This deal is only available at Knauz (located 30 minutes north of Chicago) so it is somewhat limited to people that can actually make it to the dealer. Give the Knauz Parts counter a call at 847.604.5050 and ask for the MotoringFile Aero Kit special.
