Doesn't help that they've stopped trying and just trotting out the same old engine again.

I'm not trying to be a dick, but honestly what more did you want in the engine? More power? Higher revving? No camshaft?

Yes. More revs, maybe a return to ITB. Just signs of life at the division that used to stand for Motorsports. Aside from the E36 to E46 M3 motors (the real ones, not the US S52) it's hard to think of M ever doing less developmental work for a new M motor.

They're just sticking to a warmed over version of a nearly ten year old motor design. I'm sure it's a fine lump, but M used to do new, interesting things, not just skate by on past accomplishments.

No they're not - these days they can just pump whatever sound you want through the interior speakers!

The E60 there doesn't sound too spectacular. The best video of one I think is this when the flaps are opened at 35 seconds

Motor = electric

Engine = fuel (internal combustion)

Sure...

I suppose M was just planning three decades ahead for the i3. All motorcycles (bar the twenty seven total electric ones) are false advertising.

Yet another thread about exhaust sound that happens to make front page news. Get ready for more endless pages of back and forth banter of what subjectively sounds better.

It already has started. Yes the new F90 M5 exhaust sounds bad.

Wow, I have the F10 and the performance is on a different level than the E60 and E39 but can't deny those two sounded much better.

I agree. i like the e60 for the F1 sound and the E39 for the deep rumble.

Sounded like they started the F10 on a Cold Start. The car won't let you rev higher until after about 60 seconds, which is what it sounds like in the video. Sounds like the same happened with the F90.

Of course E60 sounds the best.
