I’m curious, do people who are saying it sounds like a vacuum cleaner actually remember what turbo engines sounded like in the 80′s? Have a listen to this to jog your memories.
The Mercedes, Renault and now Honda notes we have heard to date have been pretty much exactly what I have expected and they sound good. Different, but good. It’ll take time to get used to sure, but it always takes time to adjust to change. The people who are saying they sound rubbish and that the V8′s are way better are probably the ones who said the same thing when we switched from V10′s to V8′s. It is nostalgia, nothing else.
