Sounds good, but by definition (cold start) aren't you revving it hard before even the slightest bit of warm-up? Maybe record the cold start sound just at start-up and idle, and then let us hear the catless exhaust tone while revving once the car has had time to circulate some warmish oil...

Agreed. I would not to that to mine, just saying. Must be a lease?

Back on topic: Sounds authoritative. I like it.

I think it sounds like crap...but guaranteed it was the video quality! Must sound much better in person or with a better camera.

Why would anyone rev a engine like that during the cold start cycle? The temperature gauges in the inside are not for decoration.

Cold to him probably isn't the same thing as 'cold' to us..

Looking at the average temperature of Bahrain over the year it doesn't actually get that cold.. http://weather.ie.msn.com/monthly_av...ons=wc:9215199

Now Calgary on the other hand, -40 degree CELSIUS in winter and snow in Any month of the year is the norm and what is expected.
