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've been ordering from OutMotoring.com for years and have always experienced great customer support along with fast order processing.
Without a doubt, Out Motoring is the best aftermarket retailer I've worked with. I came in to buy some small parts. I mentioned that I needed a few of the nutcerts for my Mini. One part that I needed had to be shipped to me. When it arrived they had included the nutcerts.
This Christmas they worked with my father to get my new DDM air intake to me by Christmas, despite it being back ordered most places.
Today I ordered a few more parts I needed before taking my Mini into the shop. They were shipped out within 6 hours of placing the order.
Out Motoring is my go to shop.
