    Sounds good on the way to you but as it passes and decelerates it sounds so ugly

    Nice one:sleep:

    Kinda funny to see how sound can be different from a engine on the bench or when it's mounted in a car.

    I build and work with turbocharged cars everyday, so I love it.
    It'll never have the all-out high frequency of a V10 or V12, but that compressor spooling inside the torus is always a good sound.

    I really don't think it's that bad.

    it's only the Williams (may change opinion when actual car is shown) and Ferrari which I dislike so far.

    OH MY GOD! Sorry, but the McLaren is still the nicest car of them all. What an ugly nose...even worse than the Ferrari one. :D

    Those sidepods are really small. Renault demands much less colling than Mercedes by the looks of it.

    The top one is bigger than usual, so it compensate I would guess.
