+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.
