Agreed. They wouldn't need the active sound nonsense if they just made it a lot louder, to me one of the most important things you're paying extra for when you step up to the M model is that glorious sound that they have always had. This new M6 sounds great, it just needs to be much louder.

I'm of the opinion that full throttle in any car, let alone an M car, should be an event. If I'm in a tunnel and put my foot down, I expect it to shatter people's heads not just make a nice, polite sound.

Semi related, but if they want to keep the stock car quiet then at least the M Performance exhaust should be A: much louder, the one for the M3 sounds almost identical to stock and B: should be like $1-2,000 and be a factory installed option like it is on all Porsches.
