driving home this afternoon and i was having a play with Mini Connected which i haven't used for a while. I selected the Driving Excitement app & brought up the sports instruments which display bhp & engine revs.
on a straight steady climb up a dual carriageway in full sport mode in my S Auto i floored the accelerator & let it go. The bhp meter climbed quickly straight to 189 & held there for a couple of seconds & then to my amazement climbed to 197 & then to 222bhp before i had to start winding down!
i'm pretty sure 189bhp is the published max power of the F56 S but is it possible that it has more than that or is the app getting over excited? i've no idea where the app takes the readings from.
Me neither hat. Seems crazy to me. In the past it was only on the more exotic cars and I remember reading an evo article that said if buying ask the dealer to hook the car up to the computer to see how many times lc had been used and to avoid it if it were over so many. 3 or 4 I think. Mad . Design a system to ruin the car . Mmmmm
