First tuning kit for Cooper D available

Was mooching round the web this morning and I have found someone that offers a tuning box for the Cooper 1.5D

Claims are 146 HP /151HP depending on which box you go for .

I am somewhat tempted but I am worried about longevity /clutch /gearbox /DPF issues. Don't really want to be a guinea pig either as there are no specific reviews from anyone on the website either.

You have to wonder how well it would go if those HP figures are true though???

Sounds like it could be cool, but I wouldn't buy it until you have seen some reviews online. I wouldn't want to get it and then have it be a huge disappointment. They should have a video or something that shows you it in action. I think that is just good business.

have you had it rolling roaded to see what power you're running now?

Much improvement? I have been considering a remap but might go for a tuning box as it is easily reversed.

Did you fit it yourself?

They fitted it for me at Durham (I live local) although Its very easy to do, have not had it on the RR but its obvious the difference, the torque improvement is very noticeable, they quote for SD 170>215ps and 360>495 torque, there are different maps you can choose 1-3 with +1,+2,+3 settings, I found on mind being an automatic having the +2s or +3s (other than 3+3) the gearbox didn't like it if I go full throttle and it changes over 4k revs, the setting I have it on now works without issue and the pull in any gear is welcome

Remap is the way to go!

I'm not sure if the new BMW modular engine series control unit has been cracked yet, but if available, a remap is the way to go.

I've been driving DI diesels for 20 years and have tried many Tuning Boxes along the way, but the remaps I've had have be sooo superior in driveability there's no comparison.

The last two BMW remaps were DMS, one was via OBD port the other was a CPU out and on-chip piggyback programming.

One thing to note - do not believe the mpg gains!!

The remap alters the 'throttle' pedal to fuel flow at injector ratio, as a consequence the on board CPU thinks your travelling distance for much less fuel! Remember that the actual physical fuel rate is not measured for mpg calcs, the fuel used is determined by average injector demand.

The only way to validate is a tank to tank fill and I found a degradation of mpg by about 10%.

Still very impressive for such a greaterformancee gain

Last point, the remaps were never detected by BMW service and I had no problem with Catalyst or DPF, just needed to change the rear tyres more often
