Right before the M Corso parade at the famous Nurburgring track, we had the chance to spend some time with the new F80 BMW M3 Safety Car. After our initial photoshoot, we became intrigued with the exhaust system which we had a chance to briefly hear it on the way to the Ring.

With that in mind, we positioned ourselves behind the rear-end and gave the drivers the go-ahead to rev up the engine so we can capture the sound in all its glory.

And just like the M4 Coupe M Performance Parts, this new sports titanium exhaust system delivers a far more impressive sound than the stock version.

Let’s have a look at this video and also the one with the M4 Coupe M Performance Exhaust.

    I got goosebumps with this beauty! Holy crap! And the “subtle” turbo whistle… damn!

    You guys should use external mics for this sort of job. Do more justice for the delicious sound it is.
    Probably a shotgun mic with a dead cat.

      We did. It was a shotgun. Not sure why it didn’t come out right.

        Weird. This blown sound usually comes from being too close or without an external mic. The M4 Akrapovic video is also sounding strange. Your previous videos sound excellent, except these.
        An audio engineer once told me to put the mic above the exhaust to capture better. Haven’t tried it.

        Also, didn’t get the slogan “Retrofitted Adrenaline”.

          I was prolly too close and also directly aimed at it and not from the top.
