Glowing the LuxeMINI logo on the floor as you open the car door, you'll never have to step in a puddle again and you'll look pretty flash too.
Kerbing your wheels can ruin the look of your MINI and can be quite costly to repair, so why not prevent it happening in the first place with AlloyGator.
Made from super-tough nylon, they are available in 12 stylish colours including discreet black, silver and graphite options to complement your alloy wheels or bolder colours to create a striking, custom look for your car. The protectors sit between your car’s alloy wheels and tyres, reducing the risk of costly damage to the rims caused by scuffs on potholes or kerbs.

You can also connect your phone to receive calls and texts.
