It's not only him, swamp2 has done a very impressive analysis here:

I actually trust his analytic aproach more than someone just claiming that it "doesn't sound like 8000rpm"...

Seems like Chris Harris likes (or rather, loves) the sound and character of the engine in the M135i. Should be even better in the M3/M4

To those who don't like the sound on the Youtube videos: Listen/read the comments Chris Harris makes about the willingness to rev, the engine and induction noise on the M135i:

Chris is enjoying the sound of the M135 engine as recorded in the laboratory and then played back through his car's stereo. He could just as easily enjoy that at home on his computer's speakers.

Just saying he is enjoying the sound of a pre-recorded engine not the actual engine.

I mean that it´s so silly thing to bring engine sound on speakers(I am not agree it), even if it sounds real and comes the cars own engine. Btw. Who can image ten years ago that 2013 M-badged or M-car engine sound come to speakers, not induction?

+1. The BMW system is so shameful. It uses recordings....

The Porsche system is so much more pure and acceptable using actual intake noise piped into the car. Just like a switch for an exhaust, cruise mode or loud mode, the Porsche system offers the driver some control over the volume of the interior "soundtrack".

Nice summary of these and other systems at Car and Driver here.

I actually like the inline-6 noise. I loved it in E46 M3 and with a proper exhaust setup in N54. To me the inline-6 is not the issue. It is the turbo which can muffle the sound a bit.

However, BMW can work on tuning the acoustics to get them to be a bit more aggressive by some how over coming the turbo muffling the actual sound. Also, pump the real sound into the cabin none of this synthetic recorded garbage.
