Some of you may remember last summer when MINI sent out a memo to dealers detailing changes for the 2016 model year. One of those changes caught our eye – the removal of the rear foglight option. The history of MINIUSA and rear foglights actually goes back to 2003 when MotoringFile and other MINI owners brought a petition to MINIUSA to bring the safety option to the US after some petitioning to California and Oregon to make them legal.

We’re happy to announce that the removal of the option lasted technically for about a month last year as MINIUSA was inundated with complaints and requests following our exposing of the change.

So lets celebrate but making sure we ll tick that $100 box as we order our next MINI.
