Product Details

Unlike "generic" diesel tuning systems, this advanced, self fit chip will be programmed specifically to optimise your Mini Diesel Second Generation 1.6 D. And because it works in conjunction with your on-board computer rather than altering it, all engine safety functions remain operational. What's more, the system can be easily unplugged, leaving no trace of fitment, returning your vehicle to factory standard at any time.

The CHIP Express™ system simply plugs in using connectors which are identical to those originally fitted by the manufacturer - there are no wires to cut, just follow the supplied photo-instructions for your specific engine and you'll have the job done in minutes. Once installed, you will immediately feel the transformation. You'll pull away with ease, climb hills effortlessly and enjoy extra reserves of power when you need them. Your whole driving experience will be enhanced thanks to the significant boosts in performance. You'll feel the improved acceleration, the cleaner, crisper throttle response and enjoy smoother gear changes – turbo lag and hesitation off the mark will be replaced by a faster, more linear and instantaneous delivery of performance; you'll also appreciate a reduction in engine noise. Improvements in torque will transform low end dynamics and allow you to keep RPM's down by holding taller gears while using less throttle for similar speeds, helping you save fuel. Remember while most tuning companies aim to provide maximum power our aim is to also refine drivability and in gear flexibility, providing a wider spread of usable performance where you need it most!

Better Economy

By making your engine significantly more fuel-efficient, the CHIP Express™ digital tuning system means you can achieve substantially better economy from your Second Generation 1.6 D too. You'll drive on a smaller throttle opening for a given speed and change gear less, getting you further on a tank of diesel!

* Typical economy results between 8-16% yet can produce up to 20% depending on engine tolerances, driving style and conditions. CHIP Express™ diesel tuning chips may also increase the maximum speed of your vehicle by up to 5%; applies to non speed limited vehicles only.

Ever wondered why the manufacturer didn't program it this way as standard?

Vehicle manufacturers are forced to compromise when they set up the engine's ECU, to create vehicles which will operate in a wide variety of markets and conditions.

  • Many countries, for example, impose emission controls which are far more rigorous than those we have in the UK.
  • Other countries relate their vehicle taxation systems to power output rather than engine size.
  • Some, like the UK, impose higher taxation for different emission levels.
  • In many cases power is deliberately restricted for future use.
  • Finally the manufacturers themselves often produce several different performance variants of a given model.

To meet all these different needs, they re-program the vehicle's ECU to change the engine requirements. Now, thanks to CHIP Express™ class-leading, state of the art solutions, you can benefit from greater low-down torque for improved pulling power, higher output for better out-and-out performance, and better fuel economy!

Feedback From Our Customers

Anthony from Dorchester with a Mini 2nd Gen. 2.0 D 112 said: I am on my 4th car using the CHIP Express and this product does what it states on the tin. However, the real issue for me has been the first class service from the team at CHIP Express. My recent car, a Mini Cooper Countryman ALL4 Auto now drives like the SD at a fraction of the cost. Well done all at CHIP Express!
Anthony from Dorchester with a Mini 2nd Gen. 2.0 SD 143 said: I have fitted the Chip Express unit and carried out a 250 mile drive to the film location at which I have been working. Having driven this same route a couple of times last week I was able to make a fair comparison, the difference was outstanding! The engine is smoother and develops much more power when required whilst still returning improved economy. This is my fifth chip and my third successful upgrade on a Mini Cooper Countryman ALL4, the first on the 2.0 D Auto 112, the other on a 1.6D 112. I cannot praise this device or Chip Express enough!
Vasileios from Thessaloniki, Greece with a Mini 2nd Gen. 2.0 SD 143 said: I am writing to live a feedback about my chip for my Mini 2.0 SD Auto. After installation the first thing that I did was to measure the results (I was sceptical). The result was very impressive, everything I was told to expect is true! After 6 months of use I can confirm the engine runs smoothly and the fuel consumption with my heavy foot is better by about 15%. I strongly recommend CHIP express, it is worth every penny!
Andy from Taichung, Taiwan with a Mini 2nd Gen. 2.0 SD 143 said: I’m the owner of a 5 year old, Mini Countryman Cooper SD here in Taiwan. While the 143PS power of this R60 series was quite satisfactory, and if pushed went like a little rocket in sport auto and semi manual mode, I wanted more power and torque through the gears, and more top end speed. I recalled seeing CHIP Express advertised in my back copies of CAR Magazine, and after reading the FAQs and seeing comments from very satisfied customers decided to invest. Firstly, the system was delivered to me in Taiwan within 7 days which was tremendously quick, secondly after reading the simple instructions provided, the fitting took just minutes to complete. I have to say this has totally transformed the performance of my Cooper SD, it is now not just a little rocket, it has become a ballistic missile!! Take off and pick up through the gears even in regular auto mode is tremendous! Mid range torque is phenomenal, and the engine actually runs smoother and quieter at all Engine speeds. In sport auto and semi manual, it has become a different animal altogether! I did not adjust the factory setting on the module either! Totally satisfied beyond words, so if anyone out there is hesitating! Don’t!! Go ahead, you won’t be disappointed!

What others are saying...

“Be assured, this is NO gimmick. Arrived yesterday (less then 24 hours after the order was placed) and fitted today. The fitting was easy especially with the photos and instructions sent with the chip. The first thing I noticed was the responsiveness of the engine from a standing start, no more lag. I then went on a 30 minute drive both motorway and sideroads and my average fuel consumption went UP from 33.3mpg to 38.7mpg. My motorway speed varied from 60 to 85mph and the sideroads from zero to 40mph. I am so pleased with the whole result. This is worth every single penny paid. Thank you!”

“I must say l'm delighted with the improvement from your chip, its on the standard settings and the difference in the car is amazing!!! I have a smile on my face every time I get in the car, and there is about 5-7mpg improvement. With the mileage l do, l can see myself getting my money back in no time at all. So if your a doubter like me, don't be because its one of the best things l've ever bought!!!”

Audi A6 MK4 3.0 BiTDI 313

“I was a sceptic at first, then after reading the experiences others had been through I decided to give it a go. I bought a new 1.7 CRDI Sportage, not the 2ltr purely for better fuel figures. Whilst this engine pulls very well in standard form, and was returning 44-45mpg even during the first 500 miles I had to go down the CHIP Express route. Well, there is absolutely no point in forking out the extra 2 grand for the 2 litre model when you can get the 1.7 and spend much less to get 2 litre power figures. Excuse the cliché’s, but this car is transformed and by a big margin too. From what I can remember about my 2 litre test drive, my 1.7 now pulls better than the 2 litre version. The low-down grunt is remarkable and pulls like the proverbial train. Fitting took minutes and was effortless, the box was kept on factory settings, I feel there is no need to mess with it. Needless to say I am now a very happy boy and would without question take this route again. I would recommend this to any diesel Sportage owner. Many, many thanks for a remarkable product and a customer service that is rare in this country!”

Ron from Thetford

Kia Sportage MK3 1.7 CRDI 116

“Your customer service, speed at which you deal with questions and chip (most importantly) are second to none. This is the 3rd variation of the chip that I have run, not only do I see the fuel savings made each and every time I fill up but I also feel the changes in the increased performance too. Far too often people only feel the need to leave negative feedback on a product, it's very rare that people take the time to leave positive comments however on this occasion I feel compelled to do so. A brilliant product and one that I highly recommend should you want to make the most of your cars potential performance and make a fuel saving to add into the bargain. What's not to like?! It's been a pleasure dealing with the team at Chip Express, I just wish everyone I dealt with in life was this professional! Thank you.”

BMW 1 Series F20 120d 190

“Many thanks for your fantastic service! Unit ordered Sunday, delivered Tuesday am!! Unit now fitted and, as promised, the car is transformed. Winding country lanes tackled quite happily in fifth gear. Cruising on much smaller throttle openings and immediate response on acceleration. The car behaves as a mini car should behave. I had some initial doubts about spending quite a large amount of money on this item but it is worth every penny and would not hesitate to advise anyone to do similar.”

“May I congratulate you on this diesel tuning product as it has made a noticeable difference to my Land Rover Discovery. I have tried other diesel tuning boxes for my previous vehicles (Kia Sorento, Peugeot 206 and Vauxhall Vectra)... and they all produced slight engine stuttering under certain load conditions. The CHIP Express system does not show any evidence of this and is equal to the likes of an ECU remap (which I have also had done before) for smoothness and noticeable power gains. This would be the only diesel tuning product I would recommend.”
