Such a disappointing M engine sonically, might as well be a vacuum.

Agree, the X5M/X6M sounds like it farts on gear changes. Even with full aftermarket exhaust it sounds weak.

Basically every VAG model with a DSG does this too. The RS5, GTi, etc. Even the E63 AMG does this.

Are trying to say the dual clutch transmissions cause this? X5M/X6M don't have a dual clutch. The E63 doesn't technically have a dual clutch either.

Can't wait until all three (E63, M5 and RS6) are all together competing for the crown once more.
yea im very interested to see what audi brings to the table since the rs6 has been the undisputed king since 2008

Nope, not only caused by dual clutch transmissions. That's why I said "even the E63 does this".



I think the "farts" in the latest Audi transmissions are ridiculously stupid sounding, by comparison. Seriously, go on an Audi forum. They're called shift farts. It's fucking stupid. The RS5 and RS3 sound hilarious when they shift up under heavy throttle. I'd be embarrassed if my car made that noise when I got on the gas. The E63's at least sounds a little more natural and not so flatulent-esque.
