I've got my car a couple of days ago. I was really happy with the Harman / Kardon sound. I tweaked the settings a bit and got a real nice, full and strong sound in the car.
At some point after a couple of hours or driving, the bass suddenly dropped out right within a song. At first I thought it...
Does anyone hear an electronic tweeting sound while driving? My wife and I have come to the conclusion that it is 100% not mechanical but electronic and is very steady. You can barely hear it while driving and its slowly giving me anxiety that something is wrong with the car. I think it is a...
The Zimmer Zoom is awful. Like a dying cat in heat scratching its nails on a chalkboard atop a bagpipe. I've literally farted better car sounds. Brap brap brap brap brap! Chris Rock didn't need a slap, but one Oscar winner did.
So I recently test drove a M50 which I noticed had a different sound pack, here in Los Angeles. Interestingly enough I can’t find them online on YouTube or anywhere else. Anyone else have this updated sound pack or able to share these sounds online?
BMW announced that they will be releasing new updates with sounds for the i4, however there doesn’t seem to be much info on how many sounds and how often, if you need to pay for these, etc. Anyone have any insight on this?
I'm waiting for the USA brochure but was looking at the UK one and it lists this as a feature:
eDRIVE EXTERIOR SOUND
Does anyone know how this sounds and is this standard on all i4s? Does anyone know if it can be turned of or volume controlled?
I guess this is called for. Let's see how many people will be using the i4's optional in-cabin driving sounds, aka Iconic Sounds.
On another note: What driving sounds, if any, would you want to have available? For me The Imperial March please.
Everybody takes about it. Some think it's great, others think it's a ridiculous feature. De gustibus et coloribus non est disputandum. So, we're not gonna discuss that here.
But suppose this feature is active, and you're playing some music, will you still hear the Hans Zimmer Sounds?
And what if...
Thinking of introducing a Slight oddball of a topic vs usual lecture by asking a simple question to some of the audiophiles in the forum. Doesn’t matter if you have the Hifi or HK soundsystem ordered, if you are a heavy metal head that secretly listens to classical on the highway and cries on -...
This is the thing that makes a noise when the car is moving at less than, I think, 12 mph. Has anyone heard what this sounds like on the i4?
Some cars are horrible (I’m looking at you Kia EV6, sounds like the machines in the war of the worlds).
Anyone has a description and maybe samples of what do we buy for €250 ;)
As BMW says blah blah great composer blah blah iconic sounds blah blah
I want to know what sounds and when ;)
And if it could be bought OTA later ;)
If you're interested about what the i4 is going to sound like, BMW shared two sound bytes of the concept car. One "core sound" and one "sport sound" They even got Hans Zimmer to produce it! The i4 has a very melodic sound to it, which I guess it makes sense with Hans Zimmer.
The links to the...
