sounds great

But speeding in the rain isn't very smart IMO.

Yah, something like that...

Before (but you all know what this sounds like now anyway):
[u2b]<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/v_q1XYBC39s&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/v_q1XYBC39s&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>[/u2b]

"Mostly-Cold" Startup. Let the car sit for about 1.5 hrs before:
[u2b]<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/x21YFmQNhGc&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/x21YFmQNhGc&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>[/u2b]

Obeying the speed limit through a tunnel:
[u2b]<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/Pe2hYDG542I&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/Pe2hYDG542I&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>[/u2b]

Drive by, although it probably made more sense in theory:
[u2b]<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/TwikInlzZ2c&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/TwikInlzZ2c&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>[/u2b]

Bottom line:
Awesome, deep sound. Definitely very loud. Drones between 2-3k rpm for sure but drops off at ~3500 (I'll try to upload some more in car sounds for those that want to know about this..). Downshifts w/DCT sound great w/ a nice little crackle, pop (yup, technical terms). Really accentuates a lot of the engine noises I didn't know existed, such as a slight pop between up shifts. Before the car was angry when it wanted to be, but now it is just angry. It'll turn heads and grab a lot of attention. But, one thing is for sure... it'll piss off your neighbors...
