VIDEO - 2012 F30 335i Engine and Exhaust Sound



BMW invited media out to the US press launch and lots of juicy details are coming out about the 335i finally. Watch this video of the F30 335i 6 speed. Take in the sounds and let us know what you think.

That's an awful lot of stock burble! That exhaust sounds almost as aggressive as a 335is exhaust.

The engine itself sounds like a honda 4 revving in that video. Bit more turbo noise than I remember on the e90. That's an amazing amount of burble coming out of that exhaust - sounds like a Mini Cooper S circa 2003.

Both sound clips don't sound great to me - but that's the nature of internet sound clips of engines/exhausts too. They usually capture volume well, at least.
