On the quest to help MINI owners personalize their MINIs even more, a new custom 3D parts option will soon be sweeping the nation through a program call MINI Yours Customized.

Three-dimensional printing is nothing new, in fact, it has been promising to revolutionize the automotive industry for years. Though it's not yet widespread, other carmakers have already started selling 3D-printed parts for older vehicles and now MINI has stepped up to the plate, offering a service that will let its customers do what they love most: personalize their MINI to their heart's content.

The new MINI Yours Customized program will enable customers to use an online configurator to create their own custom parts including trim pieces, inlays, and LED puddle light images. Once the part has been designed and ordered, MINI says the piece will be 3D-printed and delivered within a few weeks to be installed by the customer or by a dealer.

One thing to keep in mind before ordering a ton of custom pieces is to keep the original ones as well. Though it will be awesome to have your own name embossed on your MINI's dashboard, custom pieces will likely hurt the resale value of your MINI, but keeping the original part to swap out again when it's time to sell your car will allow it to be sold like new (well, as close to new as possible!).

MINI is the perfect company to offer this type of customization as it's been the clear leader in quirky auto personalization since its conception. We know many MINI owners who will jump at the chance at personalizing their vehicles with this 3D option. Are you one of them? We are unsure when this program will become available or what pricing looks like, but as usual, we look forward to keeping you updated as more news becomes available!
