Mini's Mission Control gets a voice transplant – Click above to watch video after the jump

Remember the Mini Mission Control in the special edition Camden – the one that was obscenely annoying? There are something like 1,300 audio phrases within Mission Control, and Mini gives owners the audio files on an SD card. That means you can record your own phrases in new voices... or use voices that are already out there... like K.I.T.T.'s.

Automobile swapped the three limey characters for that of the Knight Industries Two Thousand, so taking the car out of Sport mode gets the warning, "Don't touch turbo boost. Something tells me you should touch turbo boost." That's more like it. For the rest of the Frankenstein results, check out the video after the jump.

      this type of technology goes pretty well with the mini.

      That's not going to get annoying.

      Should change all the audio files to Chewbacca.

      I'm sure it would still get annoying, but that's a VAST improvement.

      I have the MIO Knight Rider GPS and it is junk! I have had nothing but problems with it. The KITT voice might be cursed. So watch out.

      Hammer and Coop went into my mind as soon I saw this.

      Put this in a Toyota and when you depress the brakes have the voice of HAL 9000 say, "I'm afraid I can't let you do that Dave."

      I'm sure you can turn it off right. If it doesn't, what's the point of paying $4500 on top of your overpriced Mini for it? I know its awesome, but obviously it'll get creepy and annoying.

      This would be fun for like a half hour.
      The biggest use I can actually see is putting Mom and Dad's voices into a teenagers car such that it could not be shut off.
      That should keep friends from getting too many rides.
