replied to the thread This is the 2015 F82 M4 S55 twin turbo inline-6 startup and exhaust note sound
" It's almost as if they intentionally added rasp to the exhaust to make it more "M-like" - I am not sure why (guessing turbos preventing flow), but it sounds horrible - it really does.
The thing is though, the E46 M3 when cold was extremely raspy (a lot of people disliked that, I liked it) - but when warmed up, changed tone. This rasp - again, sounds terrible even though it's cold, but might sound better when warmed up; also this is likely off a camera phone with a cheap mic... So, who knows - when we hear it in person, hopefully it sounds much better.
On another note, no matter how much I want to love this car, things like this are making me wonder. I will definitely check it out when it hits dealerships, buying it is another story. "
