Saw this earlier today, demoing a bit of the driving assistant plus more of that sound (a bit marmite I think)

Also, this from yesterday, which I tried to post yesterday, but somehow it got deleted. Seems reviews could come next week already :)
Glad we can turn that sound off, that would drive me nuts especially in stop and go traffic. It's bad enuf I can hear pedestrian warning sound now with the windows down while going slow. Sometimes the pdw sound works in parking lots but other times I've had ppl almost walk into the car , especially while walking and texting. Grant it, I'm not a fan of riding my motorcycle or EV in parking lots cuz of stupid ppl.

That 2nd link is great! Nice to see the car "in the wild" and not on a commercial!
I had heard that reviews were coming out in October. Just noticed October 1st is next Friday!!! 😁😁
The dutch guy who made the driving video’s mentions October 13th.

That's my feeling exactly!
I watched it and I said.... "The $$$ got real!" :cool:

I will get the e40 and fortunately even with the M-sport package the fake sounds are extra, so not included!
I'm not going to pay Hans Zimmer 212€ for them. If I want to hear ...spaceships I will rewatch Interstellar.

I wonder what the pedestrian warning sound, sounds like in the i4? I haven't heard one in an i3 and I wonder if it sounds like that?

Stop and go with sound is just ridiculous IMO. I “think” it should be kind of fun and engaging in launch mode only and to show off to friends and kids. (already did launch in model 3 performance and the lack of engine noise is strange and somewhat incomplete, as you only hear high pitch engine winning, tyre noise and wind noise.

I wrote in another thread that I have heard the pedestrian sound of an iX3 and I think it's terrible. (I hope it's adjustable).
Sounds like a loud fossil car's ventilator. Like you don't have cooler fluid and your car engine reached 110°C.

I hope they will get more creative than that and less annoying. Imagine walking in the city and having hundreds of EVs making those weird noises...o_O

i don't believe it is as it is mandatory by EU law and therefore. it needs to be noticable by people with sight disabilities - so noone would allow any messing around with it - but agree i also wish it was more of a StarWars Xwing sound than a loud fan
