Very dumb, reminds me of what BMW did with the new M5.
This is a "bad" idea! Engine sound ought to be authentic only!
I agree Stupid........
I think if it can be turned on and off by the driver, then it would be good.
although not ideal it is not stupid either, basically this and the BMW system is the consequence of making cars that are dramatically more solid and dramatically quieter. I'm sure they found in testing people were less satisfied when they tested a vault quit car than ones with these enhancements
It's great until the owner finds out all those pleasing mechanical noises are coming through the speakers... Then it's stupid.
Stupid and lame.
BMW people are already hacking theirs, and changing the soundtrack, their system is truly lame, i'm keeping an open mind until i play with the system next week
Personally, I'll take the quietest interior I can get. No need or desire for extra noise. I can feel the performance and that's all I need.
The sound of the DI on my 3.0 SRX already drives me crazy, why would I want it more prominent in the new CTS?
Maybe that's it.........to cover up the squeaks and rattles........LOL. :D
