Default Pops and bangs from standard Cooper S in sport mode - 25th February 2015, 07:56 PM

Not sure if I posted this in the right bit but how many of you get pops and bangs from your standard Cooper S while the Sport button is on ?.
I've been chatting to someone who does and noticed a post on here saying his does, but mine (Clubman S) has never ever popped or banged and I always drive in Sport mode, and I am quite frankly gutted pmsl. Someone suggested it might be new software installed as some were complaining about the noise ?.

Try running it on super unleaded and with a performance filter such as a K&N or alta.

What year is the Clubbie? I reported an issue with my 09 S after it had been in for a software flash.

Hiya, its a late 2010 N18, I took it to my dealer today, he told me it could be a number of things, fuel, driving style or maybe turbo not worn in yet as low miles. Well I was stunned because on the way home it started popping for the first time and I got it to do it loads more today ! happy days lol

Ah right. The issue I had was on an N14 engine.

Put some super unleaded in and give it a blast. If you can get hold of a JCW exhaust put that on. It will sound like artillery fire!!!

^^^^^ even better, add a decat and it will sound like satans uzi

PS if my dealer told me it was the turbo not run as opposed to fueling, I'd leave and never go back !!

i had the same with mine, 2011 lci Clubman Cooper S , dickor gets loads and i wasnt getting any.

mileage was 22k so engine might not be properly worn in, (lady owner)

the more it gets closer to 30k, the more bangs i get, usually when im on 2 bars from no petrol (80miles left) i get the most..

i always run mine on Tesco 99 Ron.

Just have to get a decat haha

Got the full AEM kit on mine, Clubman Cooper S 2009. Chuck in Texaco 97, and BP Ultimate, makes no difference. Just depends whether the engine is warm or cold. I don't nearly get enough pops/bangs as I would like though

Turbo not run in...

Even sports cat helps with a bit more noise, especially with a fJCW back box... decat just takes it to another level
