The grille on a Mini Cooper SE, like many modern cars, can allow large stones and debris to pass through and potentially damage your AC condenser if the aero shutters are open. Dealing with the inconvenience of fixing this damage is not worth the risk. Additionally, the repair bill can cost upwards of $1000, and it's important to note that it won't be covered by your new car warranty.
Thankfully, the MiniScreen provides a solution. It covers the grille, protecting your car while remaining inconspicuous. Once installed, you'll likely forget it's even there, but it will continue to do its job. The MiniScreen is simple to install with plastic ties and can be removed easily at any time. As it's located on the outside of the grille, it won't trap debris in any recesses and can be easily cleaned with a hose if it gets dirty.
Each MiniScreen is constructed from a robust metal mesh with 1/4" holes to prevent larger stones and debris from reaching the radiator and causing damage. The MiniScreen is powder-coated for a polished look and finished with plastic edging, making it both durable and stylish. As it covers the noticeable AC condenser slightly, many people believe it enhances the appearance of the car.
