The 'secret compartment' is an extra glove box behind the dash trim above the standard glove box. It is an option with the 'MINI excitement package'.  But don't tell anyone ??

I am not aware of anyone who has 'added' the secret compartment...

The first rule of the secret compartment is to not talk about the secret compartment.

To answer your question....in recent years this message board has slowly gravitated towards the newer MINI's, however most users, are, I think, Classic car owners.  www.northamericanmotoring.com has more modern (and no Classic) MINI content.

  ~ 30 minutes in a Mini is more therapeutic than 3 sessions @ the shrink. ~

Can this retrofit be done on a 2019 Mini hatchback 2 door F56? I contacted a Mini dealership and also one of these resellers from Lithuania on eBay and both said no.

Has anyone done one on later model years?

I just don't want to spend the money and find out it's not possible to do the job.
