    This would be my top pick of all time.
    Some other cars sound more fine-tuned or nice to listen to but i have never heard a sound this brutal ever.

    You even have a comparison with an FXX in it to really compare them :)
    The scream is just incredible imo.



    Onboard at 4:10 listen to when he just floors it :)

    Sounds great, I keep forgetting the E46 was a 6 cylinder.

    Love that sound. One of the biggest reason I bought 528i.

    First one i give a 7/10 and the 2nd one a 6/10 just because i need to leave some room as i think there some engines out there with a better sound. This could be personal preference but im more with the screaming V10's and V12's one of the uber engines is the F1 Ferrari V12 used early 90s Another engine i pretty much like is this one.:D

    I notice a lot of you have picked the higher pitched performance sounds. I cant get enough of low throaty american muscle sounds :) If only someone would mod this car for me. There's money in it................
