I've just done a deal to trade in my Abarth 500 for a Bianca White 208 GTi.

I've owned a fair fews cars in my life but this will be my first Peugeot.

Looking forward to it arriving in a couple of weeks or so.

Aye, I love my Abarth but the GTi is a class above.

I will miss the pops and bangs and the general noise, if only Peugeot had worked a bit more on the GTi note.

But I'm pleased that they didn't resort to the 'artificial' engine /exhaust note that seems to be fashionable these days !

u should here the abarth with a monza exhaust on for a 1.4 twin air engine ,its some very clever engineering ,scares old ladys and dogs when it bangs and pops on demand ...it would be nice just to have a deeper note to the gti ..but then again hit the rev limit hard its not the worst sounding car buy a long way ..my old mini cooper s ,with supercharger sounded like a washing machine doin a spin cycle ..lol

I've never actually heard the artificial noise in a car yet - does anyone know what they sound like? In the Clio you can make it sound something daft like a GT-R but is it laughable or does it sound realistic?

I hate this artificial sound thing, are Renault stupid or something...

Annoys me that the new M5 has a fake sound.. We all knew it would neve sound as glorious as the V10 but to pump synthetic sounds through the speakers is crap.
