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 recently installed the aftermarket chrome interior package on my Mini 2 door coupe S. Prior to installation the carbon black interior felt dark and somewhat cheap. After installation the interior came alive. It appears much richer and bright and almost a different interior. It takes patience to install all of the pieces but it is time well spent. Highly recommended.
We are an overseas customer in Perth Western Australia and can only recommend both the service and the quality of products supplied through Out Motoring. My wife has just received her 2nd mini an electric blue F56 with black roof named "Fabian" dont ask me why but thats how they sell cars in Australia (all have names) We received several items recently and have been installed quickly and easily. Thanks for shipping overseas and look forward to buying parts and accessories to add to the looks of the car.Even my good lady wife was impressed

Tire Pressure Monitor System Sensor for MINI Cooper

Synopsis: The answer to the incessant beeping!
If you've got a MINI with the TPMS system (Tire Pressure Monitoring
System) and for one reason or another need to get another set for a new
set of aftermarket wheels (the wheels will need to be TPMS ready) this
is what you will need to make it happen. Kit includes 4 Sensors and 4
Valves specific to the MINI. Basically all 2007 and newer MINI's have
TPMS and the way you can tell is to look at the valve stems; they will
have a 1/2" or so funky looking cap and they're usually a light grey but
there are also green and black caps out there.
Please note, as of the Sept 2009 build date MINI has a different
frequency for the TPMS sensors. Please note the option on the drop down
menu for build date and slight price change for the newer TPMS kit.
Also, the Gen3 MINI ("F" series models) use a different kit as well.
Please select accordingly.
