Dsg farts are much louder now and it's pops like mad! I love it!! Here is the link:
Music to my ears haha spot on! Where do you live up in the hills there?
I stay in glasgow but this was shot in Largs
Love it, those dsg changes are sweet, so quick and the noise is lovely
What's your GoPro setup and where is the mic placed? Sounds nice
I forgot how quickly an S3 revs... love the whoosh on full boost too. Sounds epic.
nice vid - is that with an external microphone? or just using the standalone go pro?
It don't sound good to me.
Your not the only one, sounds like an old 1930's tractor to me
Lol, that's the first thing I thought was "tractor".
An Astra Gsi with a Mongoose sounds better.
Each to their own but that thing would get on my nerves big time.
How is the drone on motorways?
its straight through pipe thats why it sounds like a tractor. TFSI engines need a proper resonator to improve the sound otherwise sound really unpleasant diesel like almost.
This was always going to get mixed reviews. Personally I love it. I have also bought the scorpion back box if I ever decide I have had enough of the noise. I did a test to see how loud the exhaust actually is. Decibel reader indicated that it was 102dB which is just quieter than a TTRS. The drone on the motorway isn't too intrusive. Although that is mainly due to music drowning some of it out. I don't do a whole lot of motorway driving so it doesn't bother me. This is an external mic attached to the go pro.. I will upload a pic of the setup later on today. admittedly, it sounds pretty rubbish on idle as do all S3's
i wondered how you got it to not have wind sound during the video
Yeah we had to mess about with it a bit to get the clearest sound. We had it too close to the exhaust to begin with and the noise of the turbo was all u could hear really!
sounds like darth vader is under the bonnet
