Mine just came in the mail today. Its a million times easier to get this to go into and come out of the tube that leads to the oil sump than the factory dipstick. At 80$, its a bit pricey, but considering how much easier this makes checking oil levels, I highly recommend it. Better have an expensive dipstick and a properly filled sump than a broken dipstick and an oil starved and blown engine.
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?
After many years I am finally in $$ position to own my "dream" car AND do what I want with it. Not Porsche, not Ferrari. My MINI.
I'm learning about my options for my "07 S Convertible. It's nice to have help/support from OUTMOTORING.
I've survived my Harleys and my sailboats; now it's time for my love-lust since HighSchool, Thanks for your help and support.
(And I don't need anyone else's permission.)
See? Wait long enough and it's yours.
I have now one of the best Mini Cooper JCW in Switzerland, thank you Outmotoring:)
