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?
Outmotoring has excellent, high quality products for the Mini at excellent prices and the customer service I have received from Aaron has been outstanding! Extremely helpful, knowledgeable and quick to respond. I have bought many parts from Outmotoring and they are my first choice for anything going on my Mini.
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
