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 can’t say enough about Outmotoring and Aaron. Hands down the best experience as a customer. Always ready to answer all my questions. Extremely knowledgeable. Thank you so much!
It's very well made and works well. No need to replace OEM mounts anymore.
NVH is up, but not dreadful.
Given the length of the (non removable) threaded rod; it's a pain to install because you have to remove the Engine Mount Bracket from the block. Putting the Bracket back onto the block is difficult. 2 hours to install by myself (much quicker if you have a second body to rock the engine forward while supported by a jack)
