Review Of NM Engineering ECU Flash On 2011 Countryman S

Anthony Gelinas, writing for European Car, reviews a NM Engineering ECU flash on a friend's 2011 MINI Countryman Cooper S.  It sounds like a "must-do."  See the graphs for the numbers.  The owner of the car exclaims:
“Dude, this is the way the car should come from the factory. I always loved my MINI stock and my biggest concern was having a mod that I had to compromise for—like more power but it shifted strange or some other weirdness. But now it’s my car but 10 times better, with gobs of power and a more responsive throttle. In First gear as soon as you put your foot down power is instant and continues through the gears. The increased torque did take some getting used to especially when coming out of corner. Throttle response is really smooth not at all jerky, and oh yeah, the factory exhaust even has a little more growl.”
