How many vids of a STOCK exhaust does a super intelligent person like you need??? Since you're obviously the "Lord of the Internet."

I must admit, they do sound similar.


Hopefully they'll sound 'slightly better' in person than in the videos that have been posted so far.

Besides, this wouldn't be the first time that BMW has released an 'ugly' sounding exhaust (i.e. E46 M3). Give it a year and most people will have warmed up to it.

Sounds like for the first half of the video it was bouncing off the (cold engine) rev limiter.


Either way, sounds like crap. I'm at a loss for words. The clearer the picture becomes, the uglier it gets. We have a trove of bad sounding clips at this point. It's not a one off bad recording.


I'm budgeting some money for an Akrapovic before I even buy mine. What a downer.

The latter part of the video was most likely higher than 3k, and there appears to be no rev limiting.

Lol @ 12 seconds - "sounds like my Prius."

Words no M3/4 owner ever wants to hear.

My case and point. I had a e46 and it sounded like this. People are stupid and don't know that the M3 didn't always sound like a muscle car.

Strange that's people are still getting worked up over these videos at idle.

Has there been even one person who's actually seen/heard the car driving who hasn't said the car sounded good or very good?

That was definitely not idle...it didn't sound like 7k rpm either, but regardless that exhaust sounds kind of ricer-like.....or not good.

amen, M3's have always sounded like this or similar. The muscle V8 era was short lived, i loved it, but it has never been what this particular model has been about.

MG looks great. Might have to rethink the SO again.

Correct - many of the revs were limited to 3k by the car. The last few revs at the end of the video were all 6k+ RPM.

Unfortunately, it sounds like this in person. Still getting one, though.

Sorry, I'm meaning at a stand still (ie. not under load).
