    I have acquired this beautiful 2021 JCW. Here’s the thing. I love this vehicle as is BUT i want maximum pops and bangs. I am figuring out that a JCW pro exhaust is not the best thing for this lady. They don’t even make a lot for this model year. Could anyone tell me if the secret to pops and...
  2. MINI JCW F56 Forum
    I am new here, I am purchasing a 2017 Mini Hatch JCW next Tuesday (hopefully). I have watched videos and have fallen in love with the stock exhaust (I may mod this in the future but it is lovely as is). However, I have read up about an LCI change in 2018 that included a new filter (GPF or OPF...

    If I put a performance chip like a Dinan chip on my Mini, will that provide power in addition to the JCW tuning kit, or will the performance chip cause me to loose the power provided by the upgraded exhaust?

    Just bought a 2015 Mini Cooper S, and I wanted a bit louder exhaust outside the car. I was thinking about either a catless downpipe, or maybe even a straight pipe system. The thing is, I love the change in the exhaust note between eco and sport modes. How does this exhaust sound change work? If...

    Hi all! At the end of January 2022, I made one of the best decisions - ordering a new three-door hatch Cooper S. While waiting in anticipation for my MINI to arrive, I discovered this wonderful forum and decided to finally post a question. Due to the lack of stock this year, I was only able to...

    Hi guys, I’m having issues with my exhaust flap being stuck. The button is connecting to the module as it shows on the remote that it’s open closed however the flap just doesn’t budge. I’ve tried wd40 and poking it with something but it won’t open. It does move when I poke it which means the...

    Hi everyone, I have a technical question, I am about to buy a JCW LCI2 2023 and I would like to improve the sound a little, but maybe not a sound as strong as the JCW PRO I was thinking of installing/replacing the muffler with the original GP3, but I don't know if it improves something or stay...

    Hi, I currently own a Mini F55 One 2015 which I did a DIY exhaust system (stage 2 tune) at my local garage shop but now I am currently in the process of buying a new F55 Cooper S JCW 2021 and wanted to find an exhaust system with valves and that doesn't affect emissions or the OPF. The reason...

    Hi guys, I am looking at purchasing a 2017 Cooper S Works (auto) which I believe to have to JCW tuning and pro exhaust. The dealership has detailed that the remote for the valved exhaust wasn’t passed over by the previous owner. The dealership would look to remove the system and re-sell as...
  10. MINI Cooper S F56 Forum
    Hi, I hope this question doesn't infuriate some of you MINI veterans, but I'm totally new to MINIs. I see the word LCI thrown about a bit, and wondered which years are pre LCI and post LCI, etc. From what I understand, post LCI models may have emissions filters fitted which lessens the...

    Hello I have a 2017 mini cooper S I have owned the car since January 2021 and started daily driving it at the start of this year. My ownership experience with the car has been amazing minus the very rattly interior bits, but 2 weeks ago i was driving the car it was running perfectly until about...

    Hi all, I was wondering if any manufacturer makes a full 3 inch downpipe? I'm looking to make a custom turbo back 3" exhaust and was concerned about the stock downpipe on my 2016 JCW restricting airflow at 2.75 inches (70mm). Any information would be greatly appreciated!

    Picking up a 2017 MINI Cooper S hatchback tomorrow. I mainly bought it to teach my son to drive a stick, but I’m also already itching to mod this little thing. What’s first?!? It has a JCW exhaust. No other mods were apparent. I come from BMW (keeping my M235ix), so I’ll likely be looking at...
  14. MINI Cooper S F56 Forum
    I’ve got a 2020 S and I’m very tempted to switch out the stock exhaust but I don’t want to cut the stock exhaust off as I’ll probably put it back on when I sell it. What are my options? (Something valved would be great as I leave the house at 5 every morning)
  15. Engine & Powertrain
    Hello! I would like to know, is the stock exhaust of the JCW (2020) can be electronically open / close? I saw that BimmerLink has an option to open/close exhaust flap, for cars who supports that. If someone done it before, I will appreciate your help! Thanks!

    Apparently the pops and bangs are mapped out completely on the LCI 2 Cooper S, so I'm deciding to get a GPF delete and a tune. Dervtech seems very advance and professional for tuning Minis, however they are based in UK and I'm from Australia. Can you guys share some advice or experience...
  17. MINI JCW F56 Forum
    Just picked up a 2021 F56 JCW, in Rooftop grey. Had the Pro Exhaust fitted at Mini Northcliff, Johannesburg, South Africa. Was doubting the exhaust would fit because of the GPF/PPF, and the fact that many people on the forum have stated it wouldn’t work and I’d get errors. But the exhaust fitted...

    Has anyone have the muffler deleted on their Cooper S with GPF? How does it sound? Did it trigger any warning? I recently Just picked up a LCI2 Cooper S. The car has been so much quieter compare to the test drive car. No exhaust burble unless you stick you head next to the exhaust. Also I...
  19. Mini F55
    I'm looking for a new exhaust for my LCI F55 Cooper S but I'm struggling to find options for a GPF delete resonated cat back. I definitely want the resonator as I want something a bit more subtle, but I definitely don't want a GPF because that's too subtle! Any suggestions out there? I'm...
