Has anyone foundthe samedifference as me on exhaust note between early published clips (from test drive in Slovenia) and new clips (captured using cameras mounted on mass production car). Check below

Clearly a "pop" or so called "burst"when changing gear

No "pop" when changing gear



Did Merc or AMG change something on this?

Personally, I would prefer the one with "pop" since it makes you feel the car is more sporty.

how frustrating ... cant listen to them. Saving and playing with WMP, no joy. Tried an ancient version of itunes, no joy.


Thank you very much though buddy for making the effort to record and post these ... it might be this laptop running vista ... will have to try the other one which is W7 .... maybe this one is too out of date??

finally .... worked fine on my newer laptop!! ..


Is that a little DV noise i can here on the second clip? Didnt expect that, thought it'd be as good as silent.

It's definitely getting louder. I think it may be temperature related. It was 10° C today and sounded fantastic!

ding f#kin dong!!!!!! thats the best news ive had all day lol.


On a serious note ive always found my exhaust systems to improve with miles on them. Once all the sound deadening material gets filled with particles i think they become somewhat less effective and therefore sound better and more solid. No idea if there is any truth to that but it makes sense to me

I know what you mean. It sounded brill today, took the extra long route home just to hear more.
I think I know why there isn't sounding proofing under the bonnet - because it sounds so good, definitely wouldn't add it!

Must have been lovely sitting inside and turning the engine for the first time!! Tomorrow 1pm is really not long to wait now. Im actually getting a little excited for you!!



Im off to Marbella. Been going there since I was 17 so a bit like a home from home. Unfortunately it has become a little commercial over the past years, but luckily we know the area well enough to eat/drink and generally holiday in the more authentic areas/places.
