In the photo below I have installed tail lights into an 850 shell for a project that I am working on, however the tail lights do not have White Reversing Lights.
What model mini has the white reversing lights that fit into the same body housing as these.

There are some on eBay, I can’t tell what specific model they come from

Eg

Yes, there are lots on eBay, but I need someone that knows for sure that they will fit into the body without modification in place of the current ones I have.

Those lights are from the first generation R50, 02 - 04 which has a single central reverse light on the bumper. 2004/5 saw the facelift R50 released which had the reverse light in the tail light assembly and fog light in place of the central reverse. You need lights from 04-07 (ish) facelift R50.

These are listed as R50, R52, R52 2006/6
They look like the same installation as my current ones.
Are these the ones you mean ClubmamGT.

Picked up a pair of tail lights today and the left is a bit hazy.
I’ve looked on line and am a bit nervous about using wet n dry on plastic.
Everyone recommends it but I’m yet to be convinced.
I did use some Maguires Scratch X and it did improve it a bit. Perhaps more elbow grease is required.
Any recommendations ?

I used a headlight restoration kit - basically just some fine polish and a polishing attachment that fits in the drill.
