UK - England
I have had my RS 2 months now ans when I first bought it the exhaust would pop and bang all the time in sport mode and occasionally in normal.
I pretty much run it in sport all the time now as I find it nicer to drive and wish it could be set to stay in sport but that’s another story…..
Over the past 2 months the pops and bangs (in sport) have become random and less and less, to the point that my last 20 mile run I had ZERO pops when driven pretty hard….
I am currently using Tesco 99 fuel, the pops were less after a good spirited drive tan when I just had the odd point and squirt?
Any help / ideas?
Sticking exhaust valve? Crap fuel? ECU brain fart?
Try some wd40 up the tail pipe

Mine pops and bangs a lot more on point and squirt type of driving, if I come off a dual carriageway or motorway tends not to do it so much
Think it may be due to running cooler on longer runs, fuel not igniting in the exhaust so easily??
I find baked beans for breakfast followed by lager then chicken vindaloo produces enough pops and bangs for me thank you!!! And don’t mention squirts!!
Only had a couple out of mine
and sounded more like wet farts
Take your foot off the throttle quicker, if you do it to slow it won’t pop is what I found. Now remapped it just pops anyway.

I have noticed this today. Pops and bangs have gone from really easy to get and today they are extremely hard to make happen? I have deleted the exhaust flap so that can’t be the issue. Maybe it’s the ECU not playing ball when i want haha
