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.
+1. Not to mention looking at the quality of the video, looks like it was recorded from an old phone.

Also recorded in a parking garage i.e the worst place possible to record exhaust.

Relax people

That one does sound a little bit 'off', but like some other members mentioned, the parking garage is the worst place to record a sound sample.

Hmmm...seems the opposite to me. Parking garages always seem to make exhausts sound louder and deeper.

Sounds like the garage is amplifying a sh*tty sounding exhaust.

+1 I think the video backfired on BMW . It was supposed to be a "spy" video where the new M3 getting caught starting up inside the garage to amplify the sound so we can say Wow we can't wait to get one! Is it just me who thinks posts like this are coming straight from BMW marketing dept. (No offence to Jason).

A Turbo 6 is never gonna sound as good as a NA V8 but this is horrible. I hope that's just a pre-production exhaust or something. This sounds broken.

If that video, shot with a crap camera, has ANYTHING to do with BMW marketing, that would be a disaster.

The other videos we have seen have been posted on Youtube by Nurburgring spotters and other private individuals. Then most of them have been picked up on this board.

The videos from BMW Marketing that we have seen so far are very different to this one. They portray a very different sound track as well.

Top to bottom, front to back, engine to exhaust, sounds like crap! A honda generator comes to mind.


Edit: which can only mean that the video quality itself and the setting (garage) are to blame here.

Yeah the echo in the garage killed that sound.

The end of this video shows how good the S55 will sound. Very similar to the S54 IMO!

Jesus, everyone just relax. Yes, that clip sounds absolutely horrible.

Did you watch the other clips on the Ring for example?
