Hi everyone, 

 

Someone suggested fitting a louvre to my Mini, and now I've got the idea in my head that it might be a nice thing to do. I have a couple of questions:

Do people have any pictures of a louvre fitted to their Mini? And if you do, how is the rear visibility when driving?  

 

Thanks :) (Sorry if there is already a thread on the forum that covers this topic)

Yeah, I've seen a few locally with the Perana louvre fitted. Keen to see a few more pics of the different designs, but mainly curious about the visibility issue.

These look great :) Price is a bit steep to bring down, but thanks for the inspiration.

I would say it’s good value. Original ones sell for more.

I once put 3 "Boy-racer" louvres in the "A" panels.   Silly thing to have done as it made the side windows filthy when it rained.

just bought a rear window louvre from ABS, at £135, plus postage , they did however give me 20% discount for being a member of 16v mini club so if your interested give em a call, the deal may also apply here. All in all the 20% was just the VAT knocked off but every penny helps.
