I recently drove a Cooper S with the JCW Tuning Kit and I noticed it exhibited a lot of turbo noises when changing gear. (Wastegate noises?) I think it occurred only when I set the car in sport mode, but I'm not sure.

All turbo cars I've had have done this to some extent, but this one was much louder.

Is this the case with a standard Cooper S too or is it a feature of the JCW Tuning Kit?

the std S does it as well, mostly in sport but it can be heard in mid mode as well. nice bit of turbo chatter :D

and before anyone says it, it's real noise not synthetic
LOL

My Cooper S does this as well. I was surprised the first time I drove one to hear the wastegate on a stock Cooper S. I loved it that much more.

Mine does it as well “waste gate” sound between gears. I thought it was because of the aftermarket intake.
