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?
Just got the parts I ordered, everything fit perfectly and more importantly it looks great! Looking forward to doing more with my Mini with your help of course.
Best wishes and thanks a bunch!
I just received my (latest) order from you guys, Blackline taillights for my R56. As always, the quality of the product was equal to OEM and the fitment was perfect. The DIY installation was quick and painless.
I just wanted to thank you for consistently offering high quality aftermarket parts and goodies for our cars.
I appreciate the repeat customer discount, and since mods never really end, you'll be hearing from me again, I'm sure.
