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?
The most stylish Turbo addition you'll be able to find anywhere!
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.

Synopsis: The NM Engineering brand brings with it many years of solid experience in European tuning as well as top notch support.
The MINI Cooper S engine utilizes the turbocharger to pressurize the intake
tract to force-feed the engine air to produce power. As such, NM
Engineering has identified two weak points that impair the
efficiency of this system and has replaced them.
One of which is the NM Engineering Hi-Flow Discharge Pipe. It
replaces the factory rubber hose between the turbocharger and
intercooler (hot-side) with a new CNC mandrel bent pipe and silicone
couplers that will not expand under boost and eliminates an OEM
