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?
Got my parcel in the mail today. Shipping was much faster than I anticipated and my hat makes me proud :) Needless to say, my evening is now booked, installing all my new treasures on my much-loved Benjamin. Thanks again!
Ordered a small part from you guys on 22nd December and received it in New Zealand on 5th Jan. It came direct from USA not from China. Tracing information every day on progress of parcel. Best I have ever had. I know where I will be buying my Mini parts from now on. Very pleased I found you.
