Hi

Having covered around 700 miles now, I am noticing a slight hesitation when changing gear and accelerating gently. This is also apparent when releasing throttle, then gently pressing again, especially at low speed.

It seems worse with a hot engine, and can't be noticed from cold.

Its too early to tell yet if it may be a slight issue worth of service attention, or just the car settling down from new.

Has anyone else noticed anything similar? The car is a F56 SD.

Thanks

Not having this problem, well, not noticed it anyway, with my SD Eddy - done about 3K so far. Response is good, but now that you've mentioned it I will pay closer attention and get back to you next time I'm out in it.

I can't speak for the diesel, but I think I know what you're talking about. I get the same kind of thing when feathering the throttle, e.g. when I'm in a parking lot and just squeezing off and on as I creep. I've experienced the exact same thing on other turbo cars and automatically chalked it up to the turbo in this one. If we're talking about the same thing, basically, it's just a type of turbo lag.

Sports mode, keep it above 1600 rpm and it flys

I have the Sports Auto SD and have no issues so I guess it's a clutch gearbox, mapping issue. I would guess they all do it. Best to speak to service who in tern should speak to Mini who should in tern alter the mapping for all cars and would be carried out at routine servicing.
