Had 2009 V, Red/Blk 2016 Now
With all the info popping, how about posting new links here so we can read them as they happen? Thanks to all.
I don't understand the need for it, but admit to never experiencing it.Does the ATS-V have "enhanced" engine noise in the cabin?
Car and Driver are flat wrong and need to do their homework better BMW uses recordings in the cabin Cadillac does not what Cadillac does use is BOSE ACTIVE SOUND MANAGEMENT...the difference is the sounds you hear are real and this is used because cars have gotten so quiet Cadillac is using triple sealed doors, laminated glass, quiet steel, active engine mounts, textile wheel liners, active noise canceling, as well as traditional sound deadening...and with all this they know people like to hear what the car is doing so with the bose system there are mics in the engine bay used to electronically get past all the anti noise tech.I don't understand the need for it, but admit to never experiencing it.
Excerpt from the C&D article:
"As with many modern performance engines, the LF4’s vocals are accompanied by recordings played through the audio system’s speakers."
This would be the ONLY way I'd even consider a car with sound "enhancement". Knowing that the sounds I'm hearing are coming from a recording would completely ruin the driving experience.worlds better than BMW[/URL] because we are starting with real noise and hearing real noise just indirectly
