    BMW M5 Using Stereo to create engine "noise"

    You have

    This is a total waste of BMW resources and audio engineer talent and I make this statement as a musician (drummer) and audio tech.

    "...ensures an even spread of sound across all five seats of the new BMW M5."

    Really? Who made this decision? Can we start a petition for BMW not to include this feature in the new M3?

    Umm, how about letting the engine do the talking and leave the stereo to playing my ipod.

    It's completely asinine. Worse, it's not clear that you can disable it.

    I would like a system to automatically play "Jukebox Hero" at max power whenever I passed 6k on the tach.

    Damn it, they stole my idea. I have been working on a device that plays Ozzy Osboune's Crazy Train every time the turbo spools above 15psi. LOL.

    I wonder what happens if you swap out to an aftermarket exhaust? Will the ECU know what the sound should be or does it need to be re-flashed?

    Hell, it will probably throw a code, you bring to dealership to find out why, they void your warranty and you're screwed!
