Collected mine last night, was a bit apprehensive over handing in the keys for the 140 but after 30 seconds in the Mini, no regrets! Even sounds pretty good despite the gpf, but no pops and bangs anymore.

Some pictures, spec’d it more toward luxury than sport but pleased with how it came out, limited choice on non black or diamond cut wheels though.

Loving the lounge leather! thumbup

I didn't realise that the pops and bangs have gone on the newer ones. I really like them on my 2017 Cooper S purely because they make me smile and they are a bit silly.

Enjoy the car. driving

Thanks! There are a few muted pops but nothing like the older ones which is a shame, the lounge leather lifts the cabin I think has a few nice details and badges too.

Got the Mini LED spot lamps on the way too which hopefully won’t be too complicated to fit...

Spots should be easy, it has a plug and play loom. I believe you can get some of the pops back, plenty of company's are offering exhausts for the GPF models, either removing or leaving the GPF in place.

Am just biding my time, other option is a Fiesta ST.

I know I get some funny looks when I drive the wife’s MCS (especially with my Cavalier King Charles’s ears flapping in the wind out the passenger window). And I’m not sure how old you are. But the car of choice of the yoof around here (Derby) is the mk7/8 fiesta with a silly exhaust!
