Best Remote Starter for Minis

Compustar is the best remote start solution for Mini vehicles. Our systems use vehicle-specific firmware to speak directly with your Mini's internal computer, allowing you to safely control many factory functions from extended range with a Compustar remote. For example:

• Pop your trunk for your Compustar remote
• Activate your vehicle's heated mirrors with remote start
• Receive alarm notifications on a Compustar 2-way LCD remote
• Monitor your hood, door, and trunk status from the DroneMobile App


"Factory Fit" Installation

Compustar remote start installation on Mini vehicles requires vehicle-specific components by iDatastart®. These components use factory-style connectors to eliminate unnecessary wire cuts during installation, ensuring the integrity of your Mini vehicle's internal wiring.

The Compustar Difference

By upgrading your Mini with Compustar, you will have a long-range solution for remote starting and securing your vehicle. Make sure to pair your Compustar system with a 2-way LCD Remote Kit like the PRO T13, which will give you alarm alerts in the event of intrusion on your vehicle.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I purchase and install a remote starter for my Mini?

I don't see my Mini model or model year listed. Is it compatible with Compustar remote start?

Can I use my Mini's factory remote to start my car?

Will adding a remote start void my Mini's factory warranty?

Can I add Compustar remotes or DroneMoible to my Mini's factory remote starter?

What is a Control Module?

The control module is the device that is installed inside your vehicle and adds remote start functionality.

Does it matter which Compustar Control Module I purchase?

In most cases, no. All of our control modules are built with high-quality components and go through rigorous testing to provide the best remote start experience for you and your vehicle.

For certain vehicles, such as manual-transmissions, diesels, or European makes, your installer will need to use a specific control module to ensure seamless integration with your vehicle.

What is "Factory Fit Installation?"

Compustar offers "factory fit" installation t-harnesses that have factory-style connectors that plug right into your vehicle.

While "factory fit" t-harnesses greatly streamline installation, you should still trust a professional with your remote start install. Learn more about t-harnesses here.

Can I upgrade my Accessories later on?

Yes! You can always re-visit your place of installation to upgrade your system's remotes or add security sensors.

Which remotes are compatible with my Compustar system?

If your Compustar system was installed in the past 12 years, you can add any remote kit to your system.

Please note: some remote kits may offer functionality that is not supported on older control modules (e.g. Proximity Unlock on PRO T13 and PRO R5).
