why wouldn't it be? Most of the articles on the new F10 M5 has touched on this active sound design which mimics the engine sound in the car through the speaker system

I wonder what happens when you turn the car speaker volume down, or off....no more cabin engine sound ? lol

I still think this is a silly idea for BMW to invent.

Introduced as a concept on the Mini Diesel?

"Presented in a MINI prototype for petrol engines in 2009, Active Sound Design now also helps diesel engines achieve a sporty sound that wasn’t possible for this type of engine until now. The sporty performance characteristics of modern diesel engines and their high torque, especially when starting up and accelerating, contradict the acoustic sensation of diesel vehicles."

while it's OK for a MINI diesel it's an epic fail putting it on a luxury sports saloon...

This is the most appalling thing I have ever heard; a true disgrace to any car enthusiast. I hope it doesn't ever make it to production as I will have to divorce BMW if it is; imagine driving while hearing fake sounds of the engine and knowing it, or even worse, some kid or anyone asking you if that is the car with the poser engine noise. (Even though you are driving your actual M car)

Its trully mind boggling that M would stand for this If they dont have the expertise (which they obviously dont) and couldnt do anything in house about the crappy turbo whissps, why didnt they just contract Arka to build the damn exhausts like on the recent show car??
Fake sound = Fake M


Hold on tight to the S85 my friends

I was puzzled why the M5 sounded so good during the lap of the Nurburgring with Claudia, but sounded so flat outside the car. Now everything comes together. BMW should put the Akrapovic exhaust on their factory option list. ;
