A lot of tuners, at least here in the US, are very familiar with AEM tuning software, and it's rather easy to tune from what I've heard.
If you're still going to use the stock distributor, you'll need to purchase the AEM trigger wheel that goes inside for the ignition signal to the ECM. It IS upgradable to Coil on plug with a P11 CAS setup, or you can just use your distributor as a CAS. There's 3 empty holes in the ECU plug that can be configured to run 3 extra coils to do this.
Only negatives I can see is the price point, it's pretty much the same as any high end stand alone, and they're not water proof, or even water resistant, so that means they have to be mounted in the stock location,
I myself want to go with a Haltech elite series, as they are waterproof and the ECU can be mounted in the engine compartment if so desired.

For your average street driven car, a Nistune or Nismotronic system will suffice just fine. I would pick Nismotronic if I did it over again. I have Nistune now and it can't do some of the things that Nismotronic can, like MAP/IAT support.

Have a look at HPA academy there is alot of videos in regards to doing the basics yourself. No matter what the ecu is the principals are the same.
I agreed you don't need to go out and buy the bees knees, but sometimes it's cheaper to buy an ecu that doesn't require another inputs. Like a secondary wideband controller or boost controller.
I'm a big fan of LINK and if you have any questions about them I'm happy to help.

Not sure how easy it would be fitting it to an R though...
