I have ordered a few parts from these guys over the past years, and always had an successful business with them. I live in Iceland and have to pay a few extra bucks for the shipping, so Aaron sends me email right away about it. I take care of it and receive the product a few days later.
out of the box and snapped right on -- 5 minutes...looks great and goes with the black jack on the roof.
I've made numerous purchases and have been satisfied with all of them.
My only disappointment has been my purchase of the black gas cap cover. The color has faded big time and I've owned it less that 6 months.
SPRINT BOOSTER, a Plug-n-Play Performance Upgrade for your Model Year
2002 or later MINI. This is an upgrade that you can feel with normal
everyday driving, not just on the track at redline like most other
This works for all MINIs produced in or after 2002 models (specific to the automatic or manual transmission - see drop-down menu).
Most cars in the 21st century have replaced the more conventional
throttle cable for an ECM (Electronic Control Module) that translates
how hard the pedal is pushed into electronic signals in order to provide
power to the wheels.
The ETC (Electronic Throttle Control), which is also known as
Drive-By-Wire, has the unfortunate downside of delayed response and
subdued acceleration, which can create problems in certain situations
such as up-hill starts, quick gear changes and overtaking.
Sprint-Booster overcomes this throttle response delay for your MINI
by providing crisp, on-tap acceleration for whenever the driver demands

* At low revs, the engine responds at approximately half the time in comparison to before.
* The delay time whilst accelerating in 3rd and 4th gear and the engine in the mid-range, is almost zero.
* Big differences in the higher rev range.
* Improved response for downshifts and safer overtaking.
* Overall safety and more fun on the road!
Sprint-Booster is a device that improves acceleration by
continuously measuring and converting the digital signal provided by the
ETC (Electronic Throttle Control) potentiometer, and providing the ECM
(Electronic Control Module) with a new, faster response signal.
The design of SprintBooster allows for easy installation in all
models, without the need to cut any wires or intervene in the
automobile’s electronics (it does not affect other systems such as
electronic injection, ABS, etc.). Installation is SIMPLE*:
1. Loosen the accelerator pedal module from the floorboard.
2. Unplug the harness from the accelerator module.
3. Plug in the Sprint Booster inline with the harness and accelerator module.
4. Re-install the accelerator module.
5. Happy Motoring!
