If you are OK with artificial sound then great for you, hopefully BMW releases a Ferrari/Mustang/Lambo sound app and you'll be able to choose what you want to hear, but other people have different tastes, and asking to hear the natural engine sound in a 70k+ BMW performance car is not complaining by any measure.


It is not an artificially generated/enhanced sound. It is the actual sound of the engine in the car you are driving played back through the speakers. Not pre-recorded nor synthesized.

Many cars today have mechanical devices such as sound tubes to "enhance" the sound in the cabin. It is done electronically here.
