There are often times when the only alternative to dealer priced parts is hunting in the jungle of the internet. Good service and availability of rare and non-mechanical parts is unusual. Parts Geek does it very well.
I decided to give Part Geek a shot since my Mini is more of a Major money pit. I liked the price associated with the replacement third brake light. I have some difficulty installing it because the spoiler is in the way, which is a Mini design flaw that they see to have fixed on newer models. Upon getting the light in (after prying the spoiler up a tad),it works great. I was glad I spent half the money. On to my next weekly Mini repair!
