External Exhaust Sound

Post by ChrisEdw » Wed Mar 25, 2020 7:48 pm

Do the different driving modes effect any of the external sound from the car or is just whether or not the gearbox is in normal or sport? Had my brother do me some quick fly bys in my 2018 GTI+ and the pops and bangs and DSG pops on the gear change sounded louder when in the cars actual sport mode as apposed to the normal mode with gearbox pulled back into sport. Unsure if this was in my head and a bit of a placebo haha! :D

The modes doesn't effect the exhaust.
If you are in sport mode it does naturally take some more revs, which will make more exhaust sound.
But the same can be done in comfort if you floor it. If anything you've heard the Sound Aktor which does make artificial sound.
