The mini’s up to 2006 can be programmed via obd2 and on the bench. From 2007 onwards, these vehcilse can only be bench flashed due to the encryption. For customers with the Mini Turbo, we also recommend replacing the front mount inter cooler. Like with all cars, we do not recommend using a cone filter which is exposed in the engine bay. With the doors closed, these cold ir intakes become hot air intakes.
Note: If a car model is “bench flash only”, it means your vehicle will need to be worked on at one of our nationwide dealership. In most cases, if you cannot make it to one of our dealerships, you may have the option of sending your ECU to us for us to program and return. Contact us to find out more.
