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 ordered the NM power module and a K&N CAI for my '16 F54 S Clubman. Both were very easy to install with the attached instructions. Shipping and service were excellent and I will continue to buy any items I need from these guys.
I've made numerous purchases and have been satisfied with all of them.
My only disappointment has been my purchase of the black gas cap cover. The color has faded big time and I've owned it less that 6 months.
