BMW M5 F10 Sounds Like a Diesel! [Video]
Then we heard another one which sounded much better, doing the same thing. This lead us to believe that the first car didn’t have sport mode enabled and thus, the exhaust noise was toned down. Now, thanks to Marchettino, we have ‘sound proof’ that the M5 sounds OK but no more than that, we’re sorry to report. It sounds a bit better under load, as opposed to being revved while stationary, but the improvement is really marginal.
We posted a video a while back, featuring an old M5 V10 with a modified exhaust - to our ears, it sounded close to a Lambo / Ferrari kind of noise - racy and high-revving. This, frankly, sounds like a diesel with a straight exhaust - good, but not great! Maybe a custom exhaust will give it a bit more of that old racing feel that you got in the old M5.
What it sounds like - though, we say this sounds even better!
