Here's an idea; how about figuring out how to build a LIGHTER chassis with a smaller, more fuel effecient I6, and gain some MPG's, instead of sending the audio engineers in to mask the sound of a unnatually balanced 4-cylinder.

If I have a choice between everyone else's turbo four and BMWs over-priced, electronic sound enhanced turbo for, I'll be saving some money when I purchase my next car.
a sound generator is not something new. The previous Z4 (6 Cyl.) had one (called "resonanzrohr" in German) as well... let's first see what this sound generator exactly is before dismissing it.
