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?
seriously this is what my car needed(2009 JCW Coupe), my old blow off valve was starting to go bad... so i picked up this guy, this paired with a CAI will make sure everyone knows your running a turbo.

All I can say is wow! This sway bar installed easily. The NM Engineering instructions are excellent. I could feel the difference even backing out of the garage. I started it out on setting 3 out of 4, but will be moving to the stiffest setting shortly. The Mini handled great stock, so I was a little skeptical about how much of a difference this bar would make. Boy am I glad I elected to give it a try. Completely worth the expense.

Synopsis: Check out the latest Halo Style LED Driving / Running lights from MINI.
The Gen2 Cooper S comes standard with the front FOG lights mounted in
the bumper but were an upgrade option on the Cooper models. While the
standard units do what they were designed to, they could perform better.
This set of replacement Halo style LED projector style lights offer
that extra edge in night driving. Sold as a set of two. These are the
factory MINI LED Driving Lights and are well made and are beautifully
