How do I tell if my Mini is Cooper or Cooper S and the model designation.

The BMW Mini at present has 4 different decal sets of OEM bonnet stripes available. They are grouped into Cooper & Cooper S and 1st and 2nd Generation Minis. The Cooper S is distinguished by the air inlet scoop on the bonnet, Cooper has no inlet scoop.

The stripes are not interchangable between Cooper and Cooper S.  

1st generation Minis have the front turn signal lamps located in the front bumper. Model designation for 1st generation Minis: R50 Mini Cooper, R53 Mini Cooper S.

2nd generation Minis have the front turn signal lamps located within the headlamp. Model designation for 2nd generation Minis: R56 Mini Cooper, R56 Mini Cooper S. It is important to get the correct model designation for your mini as the stripes are not interchangable.
