1) The gas pedal doesn't seem to give anything to the engine for a second or two when I gun it from a dead stop.
2) I've noticed that it is shifting too soon into a higher gear.

I'm wondering if these two problems could be related and whether they might be sensors or something indicative of worse issues.

Any ideas?
1) This is a 'normal' for the MINI....  It may be by design to minimize emissions, and/or it is an artifact of the throttle-by-wire system.  We recommend you try the Sprint Booster to minimize the delay. 

2) Depending on how soon your car is up-shifting, this can be another 'feature' to minimize emissions.

You're posting in the classic section.  You'll do better if you post in the Gen 2 section, or NAM's forum, in the Gen 2 section (northamericanmotoring.com)
