MINI Yours Customised Online Shop

So how does it work? Well, for this special customisation service, MINI has created an online shop – MINI Yours Customised, specially developed for the new package. Here customers can select the component they wish to customise and personalise it according to their choice, like 3D printing your name on the side scuttle of the car or using laser lettering to etch it on the scuff plates. Customers can also get customised trim panels for the dashboard or a personalised welcome message using the LED door projectors.

The designs selected and saved by the customer will be transferred in digital form to the appropriate production facility after the order process has been completed and the data will be used there directly in the corresponding production system for the manufacture of the unique products. These components will be manufactured in at production facilities in Germany and they can be delivered either to dealers for installation, or directly to customers. MINI claims that the individually designed products will be delivered within the space of just a few weeks.

All the custom components are available for the MINI 3-door and the MINI 5-door cars and the MINI convertible in the current model range.
