Assuming the active sound hadn't been enabled yet, the 3 cylinder didn't sound bad. It had an air cooled boxer engine sound to it. The all electric mode, while quiet, also had an interesting sound to it. However, this is where active sound could potentially get out of control by letting your car sound more like a video game when in all electric mode. I don't know, maybe customers want that and are demanding it. If that is the case, let those of us who don't want it have the option of disabling it.
I like the video game analogy. I mean, I don't understand BMW's goal with this type of gimmick. It isn't all real, so why do it ?

In by head, this is just an excuse not to make a better exhaust. Just seems fake and trite.
