Replacing xenon headlight complete

Asked by Jan 11, 2017 at 04:15 PM about the 2008 MINI Cooper S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have been told but cannot confirm the following. When replacing the
headlights on my 2008 R56 I must also buy the control unit it bolts to because
the bolt pattern has changed. Is this true and if so where can I get written proof
to show my insurance company?
Thanks

So are you talking about the headlight bucket? If so then the Cooper parts department counter person can verify that, he can most likely give you a copy of the updated parts list for the insurance company. Usually this is all handled by the repair center where the car is getting fixed.
