I have a bit of an odd question but has anybody else found that some days their mcs pops like crazy and other days its silent and doesn’t ever pop when they want it to?
Does anybody know what it is that causes it to pop more, I am guessing it might be petrol related and the pre and post burning of the petrol before it ignites, but the only way i have arrived at this conclusion is because it pops more when I use 95 ron fuels (but this could be a red herring)
I love the popping, much better than listening to a cd on a country lane, its the best sounding car on the road in my opinion!
Unburnt fuel in the exhaust gasses 'exploding' in the hot exhaust.
Great isn't it :-)
Best sounding car on the road??? Have you never been passed by a Merc CLS 55 - sound absolutely mental !! YouTube - top gear mercedes cls 55 amg
Are you running your S with the standard paper air filter fitted? If so the pops will decrease with the amount of crap the filter catches. Mine pops like a trooper with just a high airflow KnN replacement filter. Marvellous!!

I find my MCS pops a hell of a lot more in cold weather, than it does in warmer weather. Also, being a pre-05, my car didn't tend to pop so much until I fitted my Milltek cat-back and uploaded the MTH Tuner file.
I often drive around with my back seats folded down so the popping is a bit louder in the cabin.
Have been down your neck of the woods recently MiniPetrolHead, had a few day's work near Golden Cross.
Driving down with my (much older) mate in the car we came to Cuilfail Tunnel, while he was waffling on I wound down the windows & dropped the old girl down a cog, 'what you doing' say's mate, I said to him just listen to this as we went through the tunnel. Induction roar from CAI, supercharger whine then POP POP POP POP on the overrun
Now when we go any where near a tunnel or bridge he says 'windows down' without any prompting at all I've converted a Jaguar driver
