I returned from a rear brakes service at MINI with my car seemingly altered software-wise.

I had asked for an firmware upgrade on the infotainment system but he said I was up-to-date "as long as i'm not having bluetooth issues".

I then get my car and my settings have been wiped (ambient lighting, notification, mode, display settings etc.), not really an issue as it's 2 minutes to change it all back, but the weird thing is now when I turn on the engine, it revs, blips the throttle as though it's pretending to be a supercar starting up. Obviously my foot is on the brake whilst this is happening.

Start-Stop Button -> REVVV!...idle

instead of:

Start-Stop Button -> Idle


Do any of you have this on your cars? How can they have changed this, would it need ECU flash to change this behaviour, not infotainment?

I have the JCW Exhaust & Tuning Kit, so hopefully they haven't wiped my power increase, or maybe they forgot to add it until now. :D

That's weird...my 2015 JCW has never done that. Honestly, that would bother me a bit as reving the engine when cold is not something I ever do.

My mum's manual JCW always does this, I hear it every morning... Mine doesn't do it but mines diesel.
