That's not very nice! I was referring to the very first post on the thread, which I and highlighted in red above. As so, I was giving you an answer to your question with a bit of humor. Try not to take forums so seriously my friend. Besides, the Prius is a very ECO friendly car.

On a more serious note, you should listen for a high revving V8 naturally aspirated engine. Smooth ride with little to no sound being that its a BMW with a high price tag. The M3 is known for being the more road noisy car of BMW's for the fact that they sacrificed some sound proofing material to save in weight. If you hear anything other than engine and tire noise you should try to pinpoint the noise and have them check it out. The cold start is a loud metallic process that last maybe two minutes and unfortunately its gone. I hope that helps.

Keep your head up champ!
