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?
Hi Aaron, I recently ordered the Stage 2 brake upgrade kit and a set of Brisk plugs and the IT Performance coils for my 07 Cooper S. The brake package is superb! no more vague, mushy feel. Now the braking is very direct, very progressive, shorter stops, much less dust..could not be happier! And installing the Brisk plus and IT Performance coils made a very noticeable difference in engine response and power delivery..definitely worth the money!
Every product I have bought from Outmotoring has been of the highest quality and has enhanced the performance of my car. And your customer service is outstanding, second to none. Keep up the great work and thanks for helping me in my buildup to my little bulldog! :-)
I have purchased your stage 1 speed upgrade and the results are amazing.
Next I plan to add the header & exhaust. Also the brake upgrade.
Thank you for your research and advice.
I think it would be helpful if you also added a suspension replacement/upgrade option like your speed upgrades.
I am a pretty much amateur with all the products available, and as an owner of a 2008 convertible S will be needing to replace these components soon.
Please provide upgrade options.
