Default PCD Performance Chips

Does anyone have one of these?

http://www.performancechipsdirect.co...r/Mini-Cooper/

The price seems too good to be true. I'm mainly trying to get rid of the throttle lag, which is the one thing that's always bothered me about my car (06 R53).

Any experiences?

If you just want better throttle response I'd take a look at the Sprint Booster.

Ditto, for that problem, Sprint Booster.
