    This is a "bad" idea! Engine sound ought to be authentic only!

    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.

    like i said not ideal, but not stupid, the way i see it it goes along with having moveable valves in the exhaust that some cars have being able to controll the noise is where things are headed. these are luxury cars, i can almost guarantee you that the second any of these brands do what is necessary to have the sounds come in naturally is the second that brand gets ripped a new one for having a droning cabin or its not as quiet as its competitor. Ford has a low tech version of this already with a pipe that pierces the firewall and channels engine sound to the cabin, but you cant turn that off, if you want a nice drive home from taking the wife to dinner, seems kinda cool to put the car in awesome mode, after you drop her off and go have fun.

    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?

    Agreed, instead of concentrating their efforts into keeping the interior quiet from squeaks and rattles. These a******s are pumping more unnecessary noise in.
