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?
Grill badges are adorable, you need a dog!!! or a Pit Bull head- NO ears chopped.
I went to the outmotoring store on Monday and the lady who helped me was just really nice and easy to work with.
Stuff that inspires, amazes, impresses or otherwise perks the interest of OutMotoring.com owner Aaron Cornaby. You may see or read about good (and bad) design, architecture, audio/video gear, silly bits of humor and other nonsense here.
