A short video from a very enthusiastic Frenchman who really gets the sound..

This is the one model that I regret not buying but so glad I have the same rumble and noise generator.

I am all for letting the V8 "rumble" and "growl" out from a V8, and I am currently searching for some cat-delete pipes to allow me to release a few more of the "right" notes.

However I have been warned that in doing so I will make the car much more tiresome for cruising at speed. Without trying I really don't know whether this will be the case or not , but I want to tackle it and find out.

I must say that the current crop of "hot" saloon cars , mainly Mercs, who speed up and down our busy suburban road ( fairly steep hill with multiple speeds bumps) popping and banging on lift off do get on my nerves , especially at night.

Mine are more than acceptable at cruising speed (11 hours to Germany no issues) only let out a pop on down shift, now and again. I have had them from new so don't know any difference so I am not sure if they would be a shock to the system going from rears or de cats?

I do prefer the constant rumble from the V8 compared to my Alfa's V6, which rasps more than pops under hard acceleration. Having said that both are remarkably quieter than my previous 3W grin2
