Post Video: Raucous F80 M3 Cold Start

Video: Raucous F80 M3 Cold Start
129
COMMENTS

Have a listen at the F80 M3 with its bi-turbo s55 inline 6 cylinder engine and exhaust during a cold start.

This M3 sounds a bit 'off', particularly during idle, so perhaps the exhaust is still being tuned on this car or the recording device has distorted the actual sound. The M3/M4 has sounded better in previous videos (reposted below).

That cold start is loud, is it broken?

Is it? Sounds super quiet to me.

The quality of that recording seems really poor sound wise... At least on my headphones. That did not sound great at all!

(And I'm a huge fan of the straight six and BMW's return to a straight six in the M3. Never cared for the V8 burble of the E9x)

Ugh. That's downright terrible

Guess it will probably be more similar to these when we get the finished product with a decent sound recording:

Seriously people?

1. It's a pre-production model by a significant amount of time. They might have the real exhaust on there, they might not - they could be camo'ing the exhaust/intake sound.

2. That was possibly the worst audio recording I've heard in a long time of an "exhaust sound". And even good audio recording are damn near impossible to judge compared to in person.

3. If you pay attention to the other sounds you hear (i.e. clutch engaging flywheel, gear changes) you can hear how totally out of whack that audio is in terms of what frequencies it's picking up strongly vs. what it's not hearing.

no question that this thing will sound like a beast in person. this video unfortunately makes it sound like my gas-powered pressure washer. just not ideal recording equipment or conditions. it will never sound like the S65, but I have faith it will sound good in its own way.

I am with Brosef. It will sound great, it's a critical part of the chemistry of an M3. They won't fail.

You just can't judge the quality of sound in a car park building, from video taken on a phone.

yeah the sound of the f80 m3 is not going go match the s65. Period. It will be a great car, but it will not sound better than that V8.

It will probably sound like my wife's 335is which is much louder than my M3 at startup

Sounds like my lawn mower..Not impressed, although the garage and a cold start have something to do with that. Will have to wait and see.

Def sounds something like a type of motorized gardening tool.

Kinda like a lawnmower. Idk, can't put my finger on it.

Sorry, but that sounds like a John Deere tractor. Other videos seem to sound much different though.

Definitely it gonna sounds better than 335i or 335 IS.
No need to think about the sad side right now. We can listen to the real sound soon.
