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?
Purchased the Red Slat Cover for my 2017 Cooper S hardtop. Dealings with Aaron Cornaby were terrific. Fast communication, fast shipping, excellent product. These guys have my future business and I coiuldn’t be happier with the Red Slat Cover. It’s a really unique trim piece to add some of the JCW appearance to the front end of my Cooper S and it matches the red trim on my black and red bonnet stripes very well. Thanks! Steve
I just wanted to send you all a quick thank you. I was very confused by all the different possible option and changes throughout the years (thank you BMW for that BS) so I called in and spoke to Aaron. He took the time to explain things to me and pointed me in the right direction and best cost savings possible. Even gave me a discount code for the Forum that I belong to. Everything worked out great and I ordered all my parts right away. I can’t wait for them to arrive and get my car back in shape. I work in sales myself and just wanted to let you know that this was by far one of the best and easiest purchases I have made in a while and your people made it very easy. I will be recommending you to many others and will almost definitely be ordering again from you in the future.
