Mini Will Soon Sell You 3D-Printed, Personalised Trim Upgrades

From 2018 Mini owners will be able to design their own exterior and interior trim components via an online configurator

Well, Mini seems to have realised its German roots and is one of the first auto makers to adopt 3D printing and it doesn't matter if it is limited to the customisation department.

If a regular dashboard trim insert just isn't good enough for you, or you absolutely insist that your puddle lights should shine your own name into the floor, today is your lucky day. The program allows buyers to customize their Mini cars with personally designed side scuttles, trim for the passenger side in the interior, LED door sills, and LED door projectors.

The components, which are created to be fitted at home, will be manufactured in Munich, with Mini anticipating a four-week lead time once the designs have been submitted.

Paypal (PYPL) Stock Rating Lowered by BidaskClub
The institutional investor acquired 5,200 shares of the credit services provider's stock, valued at approximately $333,000. The current P/B amount of PayPal Holdings, Inc . best indicates the value approach in differentiating good from the bad.

That's a good thing, especially if you make the very bad life choice of having your girlfriend's name etched into some new sill plates only for her to ditch you the week after. "Now we want to take individualisation to the next level". Using a laser etching technique, meanwhile, the illuminated sill plates can present text in the owner's handwriting, basic graphics and even star constellations.

The puddle lights will fit all current Minis, and previous ones with door projectors or door entry lights already installed. The final design is then 3D printed in your choice of red, white, blue, grey or black.

You can choose from a wide range of colours, patterns, surface finishes and icons, including your own text or even your signature; once the design has been finalised and saved, it gets transferred electronically to the workshop where the parts are made, exactly as you designed them.
