Howzit all,

So last night after a few beers an argument erupted with my fellow car lovers, which car emits the best sounding exhaust note.

1. engines under 2L
2. engines under 3L
3. engines under 4L
4. engines under 5L
5. engines over 5L

:)

By far the best sound would be the older 6 cylinder BMW's 328 upwards. Also the Ford XR6 engines. I would go for any 3L + with a V6 engine. V8's just sound too American like (Muscle car sound) *IMHO*

my top 5 was a mixture of undecisiveness.

engines under 2L = JCW
engines under 3L = Golf gti 'fart'
engines under 4L = was between the E46 CSL and the RS3
engines under 5L = previous gen RS4 and E92 M3
engines over 5L = anything with AMG63.

Not going to try and rank things via engine capacity, but I will say why are we only using mostly stock road cars?

Allow your ears to experience heaven:

I love the Audi Quattro 2.5 5cylinder... I would place it a close second to the Skyline GTR RB26

VR6!!! > 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

The only car from VW that is worth it.
