B&B from Siegen has three performance levels in its range for the new Mini Countryman Cooper S. The strongest costs 3,950 euros, it brings the turbo four-cylinder to 275 hp and 385 Newton meters. Compared to the series (192 hp, 280 Nm) that is 83 hp and 105 Nm more. The time for the sprint from zero to 100 km /h is reduced from 7.4 to 6.2 seconds. After tuning, the Countryman should reach over 240 km /h instead of 222 km /h - sharp competition for the factory-tuned J without Cooper Works !
In the strongest expansion stage, B&B replaces the intercooler with a more powerful one, installs a downpipe, processes the intake routes. The boost pressure is increased and the injection maps changed via software. For vehicles with automatic, their maps are also adapted.
Three tuning levels from 230 to 275 PS
The two smaller performance increases come to 230 PS and 325 Nm as well as 245 PS and 350 Nm . At 1,298 and 1,950 euros, they are an inexpensive alternative to the factory JCW. However, level 1 is a pure software optimization, while level 2 also changes the intake paths and air flow.
Downpipe and additional oil cooler
A downpipe that reduces exhaust back pressure and exhaust gas temperature , offers B&B from 1,398 euros. The performance should increase by about 15 hp. For the same price, there is a cat-up sports exhaust system with electric flap control. A racing exhaust system with metal cats costs 2,795 euros, so should bring about 20 hp more power. An additional oil cooling system should lower the oil temperature by up to 25 degrees Celsius. B&B charges 998 euros for this.
KW suspension and 20-inch wheels
A sport spring set for 298 euros lowers the Countryman by 40 millimeters. A complete KW coilover kit costs 1,849 euros, it is adjustable in height, rebound and compression. The high-performance brake system (3,295 euros) fits behind the standard 18-inch model of the Countryman. It decelerates at the front with 342 millimeter panes. However, the tuner also offers its own wheel set in 20 inches, which costs 2,498 euros. 225/30 R 20 tires are mounted on the 8.5-inch wide rims.
