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 purchased the belt tensioner from Alta and had it installed. Had I only known over the past several thousand miles that my shock was bad, I would have changed it sooner. The shop guys brought the old one out to show me that it was completely useless. Since replacing it my mileage has increased dramatically, and performance as well. apparently the drive belt was slipping on the super charger. And power, all I can say is "Yeah, Baby". Thanks guys for making this part available.
I cannot say enough good things about Outmotoring. Quick, on-time shipping. Excellent products for a decent price. But, what really makes them stand out is the excellent customer service. They've been quick to help me find the right part when I couldn't find it on their site. Their knowledge of MINI's and the best parts to use is fantastic. I don't want to go anywhere else for my MINI - whether buying replacement parts (e.g. tie rods) or upgrading the trim elements. After three orders, I'm sold on them!
