Hi Chris

Is this a cosmetic thing - so that the car spec is updated
or
Does it involve changes to ABS settings etc

PM me if you need to.

Thanks, Alan
Hi Alan,
Nothing listed giving details, i will need to speak to Technical to see if they can tell me what to
re programme does to the system, (poss changes to the ABS/DSC system as the new brakes are higher performance)
i will let you know what my findings are

Alan,
Update on the re-coding,
The car 'MUST' be re-coded as it changes and adapts certain parameters in the ABS/DSC
system with regard to the improved braking performance /efficiencies of the much larger brake

Thanks Chris

This is what I thought - improved / adjusted DSC settings to cater for the different braking parameters of the 4 pots versus standard.

I'm dead keen to get something like this. Especially if it works with the standard Mini ABS/DSC system. I wonder when you get other Brembo or AP systems if they reflash the ECU to take the brakes into account.

Good value! Pics of rears?

Hi,

Don't mean to hi-jack the thread, just would like to offer some information:

Having supplied and fitted a number of different BBKs for both the Gen 1 and Gen 2 MINI's we have not a single time have offered a re-flash for the ASC/DSC modules. The aftermarket components rely on the good overall set up of the car and a more advance driving style.

You can also imagine it is pretty hard work developing ECU's and hence the cost for AP Racing/Brembo/Stoptech/Wilwood to offer such a re-flash would be huge!!!!

With all the parts included this does seem like a great kit!!!

Cheers,


Andrey
