    • Exhaust note comparison - BMW M6 S85 V10 vs. C63 AMG M156 V8

      First of all, both of these cars sound awesome and have some of the best naturally aspirated motors in the business. These vehicles both have stock exhausts and they really open up and show what they are capable of when their muffled stock exhausts are dumped. It makes for an interesting comparison though and we have to say the S85 V10 sounds much better stock for stock versus the M156 V8 in the C63 AMG.

      The noise of the C63 is deeper but the S85 just has a higher pitched exotic touch the M156 does not seem to be able to match. One thing we will say for Mercedes though, the Mercedes twin turbo V8 that succeeded the M156 sounds much better than BMW's twin turbo V8 that replaced the S85.

        That V-10 sounds amazing... It's so sad they are going to stop production of these engines. My bet is that the cost of engineering/horsepower is lower on the new motors (this is just a guess) - and of course "going green" is enough reason for them to have reason I suppose. Still sucks at the end of the day to realize we won't be seeing engines like these soon.

        What sucks is the S63 sounds so $#@!ty in comparison. I suppose that is one reason to pipe in fake engine sound. Too bad you can't pipe in the S85.

        The Benz sounds torquey, the M sounds most throaty.

        I've heard that exhaust, good choice.

        I really liked my RPI exhaust on my M3. Bit of drone, but priced very well and good performance.
