Hi all! Scotty(and others). Recently I started hearing couple of noises which weren't there before and I pretty much noticed them, the same evening. The car is clean in and out. No parts were replaced or tinkered with. Just regular maintenance was done at the dealer as the car had 3 complimentary maintenance services.

  1. Something possibly have to do with suspension. When making fast left turn and the weight transfers to the right of the car, there is a loud plasticity POP noise coming from I believe the front of the car. Here is the forum with audio file:

  1. Noise is heard from what seems to be from engine compartment. I would accelerate (3K or more RPM), then would let my foot off the gas pedal quickly. It sounds like something is shaking/sound of a metal mesh. It is not continuous, just lasts a second or less. It happens every time I accelerate and abruptly take my foot off. Here is the forum that has the sound file:

My vehicle: 2016 Mini Cooper S Hardtop 4dr. Auto transmission with 21.5K and no mods

@dirty dan I think the noise in the first issue that I mentioned previously, could be related to motor mount. Scotty's video(below) in 21-22 second mark has a similar pop sound as mine, except mine does only when going over bumps or car leans when cornering left. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBWetQpCiSU
