    what do you think?

    Re: ...off topic....new M3 V-8 engine sounds..nice

    How about putting "off topic" posts in the...."off topic" board, or in the sports car board

    Re: ...off topic....new M3 V-8 engine sounds..nice

    sounds like another vaccum

    Re: ...off topic....new M3 V-8 engine sounds..nice

    Dissapointing V8 sound . Neither roaring/thumpy like an AMG or Audi RS V8 motor or flat- plane crankshaft screaming like a Ferrari V8 . Kinda thin and reedy sounding .

    Yet another 08 M3 disappointment. Too much loud-from-a-distance trumpeting (tromboneing?) bass. Who needs to annoy the whole friggin' neighborhood? Or worse: have "witnesses" who say you were going 60mph when you were actually going 35? Who is BMW competing with? Ford Mustang?

    Look at the exhaust system, is this considered a V8 dual circuit; again with the fake quads?

    Re: ...off topic....new M3 V-8 engine sounds..nice

    sounds like my old lawnmower....

    Re: ...off topic....new M3 V-8 engine sounds..nice

    C'mon guys, give me a break. This is a soundclip of the M3 engine doing simulated runs on a test bench, any engine is going to sound bad in a lab:

    Although they have always had GREAT motors , have you ever noticed no one ever says any particular BMW motor SOUNDS great ? I've driven them all since a 1972 Bavaria and the only one whose sound ever made my spine tingle, esp from outside the car , was the throaty shreiking/whistling winding up of the legendary 1979 M1 motor. I guess tuning a motor sound is never their priorty . Witness the " diesel clatter " idle sound of the current V10. Just different priorities, I guess.

    I "hate" them for abandoning me (a loyal BMW customer for 20+ years).

    They've started making cars for doofus boy-racers and hairstylists. This new engine sound is designed to compete with the Ford Mustang muscle-car mentality. You _know_ that's what BMW is after with this new f'ed up M3.

    Are we listening to the same motor ? That new M V8 on these links sounds flat and monotone like a Honda rice rocket with fart can exhaust from the 90s . You can sense the lack of torque just by the wind up pitch through the rpm range .
    The Mustang ( for what it is and holding to it's heritage -not trying to be or sound Euro in any way ) has always had one of the best " thumpa'thumpa" American iron exhaust notes - even Corvette owners ackowledge that a stock Mustang Cobra sounds a lot better than a stock Vette esp at low speed rollaways and why they are always installing Borla , Corsa, B&B and other aftermarket exhausts to get that sound .
    ( BTW, the factory optional Corsa exhausts on Chris Craft and Cobalt boats on Lake Tahoe sound great , esp with the 8.1L/496 motors ) .

    LOL; it's probably my amateur ears at work muddling. Thanks for the explanation/clarification.

    My problem with the sound is I bet when you trounce on it, the damn thing will be heard from miles away. The last thing I want is for the neighbors to hear me coming and going. Or to have bicyclists and pedestrians to cower in fear while I get a little throttle happy waaaaay behind them on the same street.

    Ya know? Would be nice to be able to mess around and not attract too much attention. I gotta feeling the new M3'ws engineered sound is gonna screw that up too.

    Any thoughts on that would be appreciated.

    Boat show sucked in PNW, was good in NY but still nothing to get excited about. Didn't find anything good though. Gotta move to SoCal!

    Re: ...off topic....new M3 V-8 engine sounds..nice

    Disappointing.

    Actually makes me miss the rasp from the old M3.

    I guess we are not listening to tha same motor. Does this sound flat to you?:

    Listen as it passes at around 25-26 seconds...

    (I love the japanese pronounciation of Nurburgring btw )

    Re: ...off topic....new M3 V-8 engine sounds..nice

    Tim,
    New M3 sound fine for me. Of course, RS4 or R8 sound little bit better, but this is because of its engine configuration with long stroke...
    Performance wise you can expect new M3 at RS4 level, maybe even little bit faster in 0-200km/h...

    Regarding track times I heard that new M3 unofficial Ring time is around 8.07min... Not that bad, but little bit too optimistic IMHO.
    Do not forget the official R8 Ring time is 7.55min and that von Saurma did 8.09min with RS4 in Sport Auto Supertest.
    Since von Saurma is always little bit slower then factory claims(W.Rohrl-Porsche or Tom Kristenssen-Audi) I expect around 7.58min for R8 and 8.09min for new M3...

    Re: ...off topic....new M3 V-8 engine sounds..nice

    The R8 does sound better, this video contains a few nice soundbytes:
