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?
Did a search online for a replacement dome light button for a 2004 mini copper s and was directed toward your site. I was, frankly, shocked by the price listed and wouldn’t be surprised if others had the same reaction, after viewing the price. After swing that outrageous price, for a dome light button, I may have to, seriously, reconsider buying anything from your sight, in light of the fact that I can purchase a, nearly, brand new one- although it’ll be used- for $25, with free shipping. Please, if you will, explain selling a button for $67. That’s, without shipping.
ANSWER from OutMotoring: Hi, yes, this is a insanely high price for such a small item, unfortunately production and other costs define the price as we have to purchase this though the MINI parts network and they sometimes have exceptionally high prices on some items.
I'd like to express my appreciation with the fine treatment and excellent client handling I received from Aaron on the telephone, September 22, 2020.
I was in a jam for a much needed tool from you facility, and Arron had a professionalism that calmed me. He located the correct tool, expedited the order, and had it set to leave your facility within thirty minutes.
I couldn't have been happier with Aaron taking care of my order. What had begun as a stressful call for me turned out to have a very pleasant closure.
Thank you for staff that are competent and kind. I think Aaron is a wonderful asset to the Outmotoring team.
