Left refers to the Drivers side for US models, and the right is the Passenger side.

The Rear Quarters and Rear Window Trim fits ONLY the R50/53 Hatchback.

I’m looking for the beltline trim on my 2003 New MINI Cooper R50 Hardtop. Not an S. It has the black strip going around the car between the body and the glass. I need the back hatch beltline trim, and the entire driver's side (left) from the windshield back. And whatever clips and tools needed to do it myself.
The factory beltline/waistband trim is available in Chrome only - we have it listed on the site at THIS LINK. The trim itself comes with new clips already installed but if you need additional hardware we have that listed HERE.
