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?
I recently ordered a mnidomore hitch for my 2016 convertible. Your e-mail, phone and shipping responses were the best I have had from any company (including AMAZON) that I have dealt with. Thank You, your staff is doing a great job.
I dropped by OutMotoring with my wife today to check it out after giving her a 2015 Mini Paceman last week. Aaron and Meghan took a lot of interest in us as new customers. We were invited to come back to the warehouse and invited to view all the available Mini parts and items. We selected some accessories and were very pleased with the selection and quality of the items we purchased. If you get a chance to drop by, you'll find friendly, knowledgeable and helpful folks there! I plan to return in the future for Mini parts and accessories.
