Maybe the BMW engineers need to work a little bit harder on getting more exciting sounds from the M engines. The best M sounds all came from past engines. The best being the high revving V10 (E60, E63) followed by the high revving V8 (E90/E92) and then high revving 3.2 liter inline-6 (E46), also E39 (V8 in M5).

The new M5 and M6 engines need to sound more aggressive. Do you hear that sound engineers. So please give that M4 some mean sound track.

Mine somehow died- so I hear no clicking noise at all for turn signal's- which can be good and bad

Nothing new. Every company does that kind of testing. I expected them to talk about "cool" exhaust speaker system. Still can't believe BMW uses that on M cars!

I wonder if the guy who gave the F30 a squeaky dash and chirping NAV had an engineering degree from the Retards-School of Dusseldorf because coupled with a moaning steering column, my First car, a FORD, made less noise than this finely tuned acoustic mess.

At least my dealer is dealing with it...
