Wow... That's so dumb.
That is proper marketing. One of the main things discussed on topgear is engine sound.

guys. m5 has speaker roar too.
2001 GT Special Edition - 170k miles, runs strong.
And is a racekar. Not.
Didn't exactly fall out of my chair laughing, but I thought it was funny. I couldn't believe BMW actually bought into that crap, too..you'd think they could just do something with the exhaust.
Yeah, if you've got to make your car sound good with a speaker, you're doing something wrong.
