I have a standard MPi Cooper with the standard black plastic arches.

 

https://www.minispar...sic/GAW117.aspx

 

From the factory no seals were fitted with these. Seals were added later for sportspack.

 

I was advised that it may be best to fit the new ones back with seals regardless and they are pretty rough on the reverse. 

 

Will the sportspack seals work with the standard arch?

Or these alternatives:?

My JDM Cooper has seals on the rear arches (but not the front) that look o/e, although everyone tells me there weren’t any ....

Mine had the seals in the above post but front and rear. I pulled the flares off while hunting for rust but put them back on with these..

Did you reuse your original seals or buy new?

The arch trim on mine isn't really a soft compressible trim like the universal ones, it's quite stiff and maybe even pre-shaped to the arch extensions. Finding more of it might prove to be tricky though!

There was a long roll of it with the kit. Not quite the same but does the job

Strange. Did you buy the same kit as me? https://www.minispar...ing/GAW117.aspx

 

Mine only included the two side sill trims.

Can't remember where I got mine from but it was from one of the ebay listed Mini shops, got a long roll of it. Did a great job.

 

Found the listing...https://www.ebay.com...h4AAOxyQj9RTECc

I've now found the o/e seals that should be fitted with the standard plastic arch extensions, available from DSN Classics, Rimmers etc ... despite numerous people telling me they don't exist!

Think you’ll find it is, it’s the same rover part number DFP 100400
If you read the description properly it tells you it’s also used on the non sports pack plastic special arches

Plus you get discount if purchased through minispares
