nailed it!

i wonder how much better they will sound with a proper intake and akra exhaust though. more than likely they are giving it bad sound until you purchase m performance parts for it.

I thought I read that the exhaust was jointly made with akra.

I still cant believe that the majority of ppl here when talking about sound are still referring to the exhaust note.

Hint: Its the engine noises that are awesome and thats the complaint about moving to turbo.

Also wanted to say BMW better not give owners a hard time when the car is tracked given that every single video is on a track and emphasis has been made for track conditions as well as hyping up the m track app which has already been out and works on a bunch of cars already lol.

A. Tire insurance is usually very expensive unless you get a very good ideal on M3s.
B. It won't cover wear and tear, its road hazard coverage.
It does if you happen to run over some nails... ;-)

Yes aftermarket options will improve the sound, but the baseline they are working with here is not very promising.
Does this make any difference in your decision to purchase the car?

Exactly. Super annoying if/when dealerships give you warranty issues when you track your car.

Look at how they market it!
