    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?

    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??

    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
