Ok. So no pops and bangs which is disappointing. However the car is awesome and exceeds my expectations. I even have this little cool mini sign projected onto the ground by the drivers door. #easilypleased

Nice to read that you are happy with it, on the pops, have a read of this thread and a quick fix could be running on super unleaded.

Pops and bangs from standard Cooper S in sport mode

Thanks zf44! I’m only at 5k miles and less than a year old. Will be getting used to the new toy before I start to make any serious modifications. Like the super unleaded idea though, I’ll give that a try.

With that mileage its brand new. It should definitely pop, take a look at this video on a 2015 Clubman Cooper S launch model. Nothing special on the mod front and with a normal exhaust it pops nicely.




Also, I highly recommend the higher premium fuel on these engines, although both our MINIs are diesel we use Shell V-Power Nitro+, performance and fuel consumption much better compared to the cheaper brands.
