    Exhaust so loud, didn't hear my girlfriend in the car.

    Driving to a xmas party last night and in sport mode (997 GT3) and realized I couldn't hear anything my girlfriend was saying. Just enjoying the sound of the exhaust. I did hear her say "my car is soo much better because it's so quiet, smooth, comfortable, blah, blah,......" I started to zone her out at the point. Any it's really my car (2005 Lexus SC430, candy apple red) she talking about; bought it for her 2 years ago. One thing great about this car, if you don't want to talk, it's perfect, because once you press down on the gas, you won't be able to hear anything but the exhaust. Bear in mind, my girlfriend is gorgeous and likes to talk (not exaggerating on either points), but when I'm driving this car I like to be left alone and just enjoy the beautiful music it makes.

    It is time you change NOT THE EXCHAUST but your girlfriend i think...

    P.s I would be happy if i had a car that I couldnt hear what my girlfriend says...

    The constant exhaust drone of my 997S engine sometimes gets on my nerves when I'm tired from a long day and on a long drive home. Makes me want to drive a less "engineered-for-sound" car.

    My girlfriend or the GT3? She's the one with the red top. She will kill me if she knew I posted this.

    Most definitely. My girl has lots of single hot friend. The only problem with her is she does not appreciate the car. It's good in a way because I don't have to worry about her driving my cab or my GT3

    I'm not that guy, but I am this guy. Actually that was an interesting weekend. It's a lingerie party in Las Vegas called "Pimps & Ho's" sponsored by Club Rubber and occurs annually over the labor day weekend. I almost elected to drive my 997 CS2 cab that weekend. I'm glad I didn't because my friends who did drive took them 10 hours from LA to Las Vegas. Just waiting for the Low Jack guy to finish his installation. Im also gdtting the motion detector option with lowjack. I guess theycompany calls me if the car is moved. Have a happy holiday season Rennteamers.

    Re: Exhaust so loud, didn't hear my girlfriend in the car.

    That's the last pic. Only will post stuff related to Porsche from now on. Thanks!

    Re: Exhaust so loud, didn't hear my girlfriend in the car.

    I can understand how the sound could be a bit too much for some- definitely not for me or anyone else I know.

    Is your GT3 much louder than a C2/4S with X51 and PSE or about the same?


    Thanks

    Very nice pictures, happy holidays!

    I have a 997 C2S cab with sport exhaust but not with x51 ($16000, ouch). Both exhaust sound good but the GT3 has a beefer exhaust sound and it's much louder, however, if you don't turn on your sport button, I would say it's more tolerable. I always have the sport button on. Just sounds better.

    Re: Exhaust so loud, didn't hear my girlfriend in the car.

    This exhaust sound looks like a feature to me, not a bug.

    That chick was not amused Does the name Bobbit not mean anything to him?

    Regarding the hot chick in the red top - Me soooo hor*y...

    Re: Exhaust so loud, didn't hear my girlfriend in the car.

    She was putting up with it very well, IMHO. Probably will put out with it even better. Besides ruined tires, the biggest risk was GF vomiting.
