This is a review of the M12 stud conversion kit for the R53 MINI Cooper S. This is the second stud kit that I have installed. The first set was of much lessor quality and was totally worn out within six years of auto-x, track days and winter tire change-over.
These new studs appear to be far superior and slightly longer. I also like the unthreaded portion that allows lining up the nut to help prevent cross threading.
I do have one question; Do you recommend any using any lubrication on the threads of the studs?
Great product, easy to install, and was delivered way before expected. I could not believe how fast this item came to me. Just need a little contact cement for the parking brake boot for a perfect install. Thanks again OM
installed a notch scoop on my r53 i love the way it looks, adds a more aggressive look and its priced right.
