Auto-up windows (no, not for the R56!)

I’ve spent some time investigating auto-up windows for the R56, and concluded that there are two possibilities, neither of which is an easy install … so for now, any R56 project is on hold.

Meanwhile, I got bored with the “old” MINI circuit for 2001-2006 MINIs (and 2007 convertibles), so I designed a new one and had a batch made!

The primary difference of this new circuit, is that it integrates both Track Mode DSC and the “AFF” (auto-front-fogs) function, in the basic design! So now there’s only one basic circuit, which gives all features – of course you don’t have to enable the features you don’t want …

(adding a garage-opener-remote still requires extra circuitry so adds cost)

Another reason for the re-design was to reduce the component count, and thus reduce manufacturing cost – thus allowing me to provide all three MINI circuit features at the old $45 price!

That being said, I still have a few of the original auto-up-only design in stock, so they’re now available-till-gone at a discounted price of $36! I will of course be sending refunds to people that purchased in the last couple of weeks … [UPDATE: ALL SOLD!]

You can order the old or the new (“V6″) circuit on my auto-up-windows web page here

    No more of the “auto up only” circuit now … I didn’t expect them all to be purchased that fast!

    Lots of stock of the “all new V6 MINI circuit :)

    Still one of the best things I’ve purchased for my MCS.

    Adam won one of your auto up only circuits while we were at MOTD. As he already has one he sold it to me at a very generous price, so you could say that I won it. I just installed it today (much easier than I thought it would be) and it works just great.

    Many thanks, Ian, for your generous donation to MOTD.

    Is this an easy install for REDSOX1?

    I think so :)
