You can count me in for a retune, depending on the date of this event.

I don't own a MINI yet, but I've been reading all these RMW tune threads and you folks have me completely sold. I read that whole 60 page thread on the flash tool yesterday (OK, I skimmed most of it) and by the time I was done I was ready to place an order. Went home and told the wife this is gotta have!
Unfortunately I have a long wait before I can get out from under some debt and save up a down payment ...maybe I should try selling drugs or something
Is there any reason why the RMW tune would not work on the 2011 MCS? I assume it is the same ECU, but with the new valvetronics?

Mark, seriously dude, we are gonna have to get together and go for a ride in your JCW...I am just down the road in Gastonia. It'll all be over then, lol!

No problem man, whenever you're ready. My bodyshop is less than a mile and a half from the 485 intersection and independence blvd.

The reason I'm such a fan of RMW is because of the results for what you're paying for. I've done the Stage I kit and there is NO WAY IN HELL I would ever go back. Not even close.

Anyway, come see me.

I was almost there sometime between 10 pm and 12:30 am last Thursday while waiting in the Charlotte airport for a really delayed flight to upstate NY after getting rerouted from Pittsburgh Flying sucks these days. Yet being so close to Roebling Road and not be able to do anything about it. Do they rent Mini S's at the airport?

Slartibartfast: as for buying a Mini, just do it. I bought one after driving my wife's just-a-Mini-a for a couple of years. That was enough for me. A ride in Mark's will probably just send you over the edge If you survive the ride (mentally) just as about his seats that'll really send you over.

OC: have you seen any posts for a RMW tune in the Northeast? Don't tell Slinger688 I'm looking

Would a tuning help mpg? I have an '04 r50. If it would help my car I'm game. Where is the shop and what would be a first time tune estimated price? Also is there any maintenance that should be done right before a tuning to maximize the effect?

Damn, you want even more gas mileage?

Typically tunes do not raise your gas mileage. They usually stay the same...

That is, if you can keep your foot out of it.

I can get 34-35mpg on the highway if I drove like my mother. Around town, I'm averaging 23'ish. (28-30 if I drove like a normal person)

I dunno, it seems to me my mileage was better after tuning - that is after I had gotten over the initial joy and stopped driving with a lead foot.

No, you're right, I should have been more clear.....

Typically, (more so in this forum) the minis getting tuned are for performance.... Not for gas mileage.

You can burn more fuel after a tune as in more power but driven normally (no lead foot) it can get the same if not a bit more MPG!!!
