I sort of knew what to expect having run the equivalent carbon plenum on my S65 for the last year or so.
But a V10 just sounds different.
The V10 doesn't make the guttural & "rattly" induction sounds of the V8 in the 3,000 RPM range, but it makes up for it above 4000.
There is a noticeable increase in volume - it's flat out louder.
You control the volume with the throttle: WOT gives you all the decibels, part throttle remains mild.
It drones out my V3 headers and valved rear section with windows up.
If I want exhaust noises, I go into Lambo mode.
Fold the back seats down and lower the windows.
"The original M5 design philosophy is retained; the spectrum is simply enhanced."
I like that.
The aesthetics of the naked matte carbon paired with the @infinityautodesign air intakes is a striking contrast with the somewhat boring looking OEM intake.
Popping the hood makes for ever more interesting conversions in my fat Bronzer sedan :)
I owe you guys video clips of this and the headers, I know! I'm getting to it shortly.
This is curated year long for S85 owners. Slide in my DMs to help you spec your carbon plenums.
