Aaron and his staff down at OutMotoring are awesome! Always extremely friendly and helpful with any questions I have about their products and Mini's in general. I live near by so it is nice to be able to go down and pick up everything I need and look around at what they have on the shelves. They always have what I come to get in stock and if they don't they always offer to order it for me. I have purchased almost all of my Mini parts from them and I will continue to do so! Thanks again OutMotoring!
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?
Ordered oil change kit for my Mini Cooper. One of the oil containers had leaked throughout the box, soaking everything else, and through the bottom of the box. Made a oily mess. You need to check the caps to make sure they are tight before shipping.
