been quoted £270 for a superchip, fully fitted. should take my ONE to 105bhp.

is it worth it?

is there only one type of superchip out there or is there different brands?

cheers!

Try the MTH upgrade, figures of around 130bhp have been talked about for the mini 1, and for less than £100.00. Have a look at the thread on MTH below and see what you think.

Don't do it, go with MTH as someone else has suggested. Not only can you swap between standard and revised maps (added piece of mind during servicing) but its a fraction of the cost. The software itself only costs about £40 but then you will require a cable (£60) but this is something you could borrow off somebody else if you did want to save ££.

Franz at MTH does do diesel!

As for the ONE conversion, it's fantastic it makes the car even better than the standard Cooper & all for £100 :cool:

Not sure if he does or not, he did mine at around 7.30pm on a friday evening, so if he likes
to work those hours he may work weekends too.

I did read somewhere on the MTH thread that he did have a bit of a back log to sort, something to do with his computer going down and having to reprogramme a whole batch of ecus again, it may be because of this that he's a bit slow this time.

@ Shorty and Bryce03

If you can not download you file do not upload. The only thing that can happen is that the upload screws up. When it does happen you can attempt to upload again. If all fails then BMW has to put the software in the ECU since it will not start.

You can read the thread on NAM with the proper "How to" and all additional infos. Everything is in post #1 so you do not have to read thru the entire thread.

I will ask Paul if I can post it here maybe.

Good idea getting those instrucions on here, seems to be more and more people wanting to do this update. Could also use the thread with the instructions as a bit of a FAQ and problem sorting thread aswell.
