Are the wheels on the R56 still 4 x 100mm? If not I highly doubt I would order a new R56 to replace my '05 cooper since I don't have enough $$ to add some decent wheels. The current flavors are god awful!! :angry: :angry:

Thank goodness. I wonder if the dealer would let me trade in my "old"car with the new wheels and let me keep my old wheels for the new car. :D

Nearly all wheels with 4x100pcd have holes of nearly 16mm diameter so will work ok with either M12 or M14 bolts.I was thinking along the same plan as you guys so we got the vernier out to make sure. The other thing to check is that the bolts you use have the correct seat for the wheels. There are 60 degree taper seat or spherical seat ,I expect they will be taper but VW & Audi for example use the spherical seat. We manufacture our own longer M14 bolts with seperate taper or spherical seat washer.
