Mercedes AMG63
« on: 05 June 2021, 21:22:24 »

Young Asian lad from corner shop parked his AMG63 outside our kitchen window today, I've been looking at it every time I go out. He's just been to move it and, when he started it up, the dog ran upstairs and hid under the bed  ;D
It is very loud  :o

It's not just the ridiculous volume, but it's such a ghastly noise. And it's all bluster, because there's no need for it at anything other than full throttle/high RPM.

Always nice to have respect for your immediate supervisor.  ;D

Originally a N/A 6.3 V8......well 6.2 actually.

Than a twin turbo 5.5 V8

Now a 4 litre twin turbo V8.

Are you tempted to replace  the mighty Astra derv with any of the above?

It's the same for any german "prestige" car these days, even the poverty spec ones. Popular with those fragile of ego, maybe. :-X

We have three Germans and they're all very quiet, even in sport/dynamic mode.  :-\   I'm not a fan of crackles and pops on overrun so I'm glad they don't have that feature mapped in. On the other hand, active exhaust sounds (fake noise or amplified) played through the speakers is becoming common on a lot of cars now. BMW with the M5, Audi with the competition model and Jag with the XE and F Type to name a couple I believe.  :)  I appreciate the F Type makes a nice noise anyway so what's that all about.  :-\

I just like the normal burble from a V8, no need to accentuate the sound with pops & bangs.

I'm not sure what the purpose of pops and bangs and crackles is, other than to scorch/set fire to the rear bumper.  ::)

Only on the turbo 4 pot (as the turbo extracts the 'noise' from the exhaust)

What's the idea of the stupid whistle noise that the lad down the road from me has on his Audi when he accelerates/changes gear?  ::)

It's supposed to imitate the sound of a dump valve/wastegate, but they sound like a demented budgie  ;D
