    I bet the mic is making it sound worse than it really sounds. I can say with confidence that a 1M with Akrapovic system that we did a while back sounded amazing when opened up. Id be just fine if the S55 sounded like that with an exhaust.

    They were going to include an S55 in that video but it went into limp mode on the way to climb.

    Sounds good to me in each video but whatever. All I know is I was surprised how awful the S55 sounded in this vid. I wasn't expecting an S85 V10 under the hood but I mean...

    Yeah I hear ya Sticky, I was honestly expecting them to accentuate the turbo sound and just have a good clean exhaust that just wasn't loud, which would be better.

    This video sounds a little better actually. Not sure why so much water coming out again...

    LMAO...why must we make so many excuses for M Cars these days? I remember first hearing the e46 M3 in videos when we nowhere near the sound tech we have now and everyone still loved the sound. A car is supposed to sound good regardless of where/how you're hearing it.

    It's almost as if they intentionally added rasp to the exhaust to make it more "M-like" - I am not sure why (guessing turbos preventing flow), but it sounds horrible - it really does.

    The thing is though, the E46 M3 when cold was extremely raspy (a lot of people disliked that, I liked it) - but when warmed up, changed tone. This rasp - again, sounds terrible even though it's cold, but might sound better when warmed up; also this is likely off a camera phone with a cheap mic... So, who knows - when we hear it in person, hopefully it sounds much better.

    On another note, no matter how much I want to love this car, things like this are making me wonder. I will definitely check it out when it hits dealerships, buying it is another story.

    That motor does sound incredible - that's how an engine in an M should sound.

    As long as the M4 outperforms the old M3, which I'm sure it will do easily, I will settle and just add some mods for a different exhaust note!

    All BMW factory turbo cars these days sound really farty. And this is generally made worse by aftermarket exhausts. There were few exhausts I liked for my 335.

    I have high hopes for this new M4, but I really don't think I'll ever be taken by how it sounds. Then again I drive around in a tin can full of bees.

    I am sure it will outperform the M3, but that's not why I would buy an M3, that's why I would buy a Corvette Z06 Click here to enlarge

    There are things that made an M3 special, this was one of the largest (the engine) - they changed direction, and I think that's silly. I understand but I don't at the same time. Just an FYI, didn't neg rep, almost never do that $#@!.

    Besides the V8 and the V10, M's weren't the best sounding. Yea the E46 m3 had a distinct tone, and it was equally loved and hated. Even though BMW has changed direction with the turbo, I still think the new car will give just as much enjoyment as any other M. No, it won't rev 8000rpm or above, but that won't prevent the car from selling as all the rest did. I still see this car as an overall win.
    I wasn't concerned with the negative rep though. Its a part of the game. No sweat.
