But how and why? How do they do it? it's a very distinct sound, even a bog stock 105 series with a NA four sounds pretty dang good.

Garage List
BMW has a solution for that and it's called ASD.

Here you can hear melodic sound of a straight six in your 4 cylinder BMW but only while you're inside. Outside it sounds like a diesel clattering from all the direct injectors.

I wonder what the 2.0L 3 cylinder turbo from a 600HP Koenigsegg Gemera sounds like?

The sound is so distinct and is only heard by select billionaires or some lucky journalists!

Beating a dead horse here...

Sound and it's interpretation, ie, like/dislike is completely subjective to the Listener!

Or shall we all listen to Bach!? Lmao...

You could be right but the headers on the FA engine are equal and it does have a "rumble" but probably not as bad. I'll have to compare the two.

Thanks

Similarly, a 4-banger could be made to sound good and some V12s sound like vacuum cleaners.

Sportscars handling>>>>>>>>>>>>>sound.
Depends where you live. Roads here are BRUTALLY straight and monumentally dull, there is literally not a decent road for at least 300 miles.

I will take some NA revs and some noise over pure handling given where I live.
