The old card-in-the-spokes trick: BMW Active Sound Design

Seems that the BMW M drivers are not fans for Active Sound Design

http://f10.5post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=588968

Thank God Chevrolet has not stooped to this.

Public: I like the sport BMW but it sounds a little wimpy. :(

BMW: We need to make our cars sound like muscle cars!

Public: Thats a great idea! An exhaust will help performance and sound!

BMW: No... even better... we'll make the radio play the sound of a Camaro so that when you drive it it sounds like a real sports car.

Public: Are you stupid? Ill just buy a Camaro.

CHEVY... THERES ONLY ONE!







this should be a commercial

Yup, thats a terrible idea. Still though, I would happily take an M5. One of those would absolutely spank my camaro. Amazing car.

Since it costs more than double a Camaro I would certainly expect it to.

Wow that's a cheesy idea, especially from BMW. Hopefully it can be disabled. It seems Ford had a better idea of piping the air intake into the cabin to add sound on the Mustang. I haven't heard anyone complain about it on the stang forums. At least it can be disconnected. Apparently, the Mutang is too quiet and not enough engine noise gets through.

BMW already did this on the older z4...nothing new there. Also the difference between an f10 m5 and our camaro is, yes...they are both fast..but the BMW can do 200 with 4 people in it while enjoying the ventilated/massaging seats with the radar guided cruise control on and if you do that at night you can turn the night vision on...its sick.

Radar guided cruise control??? I am assuming it slows down for upcoming traffic on it's own? Meh I like my Camaro, it's the greatest effin thing since sliced bread. Screw some fancy BMW!
