Pre turbo era F1. Listen to the purity of this sound and try not to cry as to what's been lost.

Who do I talk to around here about why a S63B44 was not added to this list?

It's definitely better sounding than a S65B40

Yeah it was metallic sounding, but it was still nice when new. Back in those days the straight 6 was what bmw was known for, their v8's were in 6s & 7s only

This guy gets it! There's exhaust noise and engine noise---very different things. BMW doesn't make many street legal M engines with a pleasant exhaust note, particularly within the last 15 yrs. The exhaust in my S65 sounds ok--but it's benign. Or terrible IMO, when people basically gut the exhausts on these.

But the engine noise when uncorked a little with an intake? Best sounding engine I've ever heard in a reasonably priced car.

A few people said "it sounds great", i just raised an eyebrow and shook my head.

My uncle told me he hates how M3s are "so loud."

He works in tech and adores Tesla.

This may get some people riled up but I have noticed that every eight cylinder MB I have owned it sounds better from the factory than any stock eight cylinder BMW I have owned. MB dials in the exhaust note fairly well from the factory and when equipped with a valved exhaust it is almost perfect in terms of conservative when needed and spirited or more lively when desired. Why does BMW have difficulty with this and the inability to suppress the shift burps on their 4cyl/6cyl applications?

Much as I love barky V8s and howling V10s, it’s the solid-wall-of-induction-noise of bmw straight sixes that make the brand for me. I dont think i heard anything sound better than this it sounds like a device for sawing whole buildings in half.

it has it's pros but it is not my preference despite having owned a few different FI BMW and enjoyed them. currently in a Dinan S2 '18 X5M and it is jam packed with fun but i would not say it is something i love.
