Update To Long Term Review Of 2013 MCS Coupe

Motor Trend updates its long term review for the second time on the 2013 MINI Cooper S Coupe and adds these observations:
More enjoyable is the Sport mode. It quickens the throttle response and steering, and it also makes the exhaust burp and backfire delightfully when you lift at around 3700 rpm. The staccato pops and burbles are hilarious, making rush hour commuting slightly more tolerable. But there's a stranger effect: When I drive some of the more powerful and expensive sports cars that make their way into the MT garage, I'm disappointed when they don't make those noises. And that makes the Mini Coupe even more endearing.
