    Hard to say if it’s better or worse than Audi putting actual speakers into the exhaust system.

    Pretending your own car sounds better than it does, or tricking your car to sound better than it does to the world.

    Delusion versus Poseur.
    A good argument to be made that the Americans are doing the enthusiast cars right now, and the Germans are not.

    Hard to argue against that

    I kind of want a Tesla that does this now. A V12 Tesla.

    Maybe,

    I read this on the BMW forums, a BMW tech mentioned the mic thing.

    Who knows, I donít care either way.

    Car sounds mean and goes like stink.
    Yes, you just have no idea what you're talking about. As usual.

    I would have been interested in this car if it had an AWD option.

    10 more years and it will all be electric cars.

    It's thoroughly depressing. I sold my V-wagon primarily because the power and RWD in Calgary made for a bad daily driver. About 10-15 days a year I stayed home.

    600+hp and RWD makes for unusable power below 100km/hr unless you enjoy burning copious amounts of rubber of your tires.

    And then they put a manual transmission in it...
    - "But DSG is faster on the track than manual shifting"
    - "but its a drivers car, needs 6 spd"


    Full disclosure: Total manual fanboy #shiftinggg
    Full disclosure x2: I'd rock one still
    The 6 speed is a great option for people that are planning on modifying the car, have seen a few 1000+ HP Camaros running the stock 6 speed transmission without any issues.

    Edit: With street tires of course

    You do know I owned a 600rwhp rwd car with a 6 speed right?

    You also know I let some of the best drivers (well known on this board) drive my car down the 1/4 and none of them could run a better time than myself.

    LOL

    Ha! I'm aware of the Mustang you used to own. I have a RWD car with much more HP than your old Mustang and I'm able daily it over the summer without burning copious amounts of rubber off my tires. I must just be a better driver.

    I have driven it in the winter and it has been fine. Shockingly I did have useable power under 100 km/h and I was still able to avoid potholes while driving through Aspen!

    Can’t afford separate great winter cars and great summer cars?

    Trying to fit them all into one is so Aspen.

    Got to decide if you want rather an 89coupe or a 90shelby I suppose...
