03/04/2019 - New Classic Mini Dash Liner Kits & 1275GT Seat Cover Kits

We are well aware here at Optimise that “the customer knows best” and over the years we have continually made updates across the Classic Mini product range, to ensure that you all get exactly what you want and/or need.

Our latest update is to our range of dash liner kits and we have reluctantly been forced to drop our innovative one-piece lower dash tray liners in favour of an original style three-piece lower dash tray liner kit.

Our binnacle dash liners and innovative one-piece lower dash tray liners fitted slightly different to the original trim and unfortunately, from time-to-time, our customers struggled to get them to fit correctly (we can only guess that this is because they want them to fit just like the original liners).

As a result, we have made the decision to drop our innovative one-piece lower dash tray liners and replace them with a kit that everyone will be able to install correctly.

The new kits consist of two (one for each side) under dash tray liner support trays (manufactured from 6mm MDF) and a one piece padded dash tray liner (manufactured from a 3mm closed cell foam and trimmed in either leatherette or carpet).

In addition to this, we have also had problems in the past when customers have attempted to install one aspect of our dash liner kits (either a binnacle dash liner or a lower dash tray) with one aspect of an original dash liner kit (either an original binnacle dash liner or an original lower dash tray).

As a result, we have also grouped the new lower dash tray kits together with our binnacle dash liner kits.

These latest updates will ensure that every dash kit we sell, will fit every Mini (even if you install them like the original dash liners), without any problems.
