Virtually all new cars are coming with fake-sound. This isn't some special 5-series thing. This has been happening for years.
Iím aware of the pandemic of fake sound. It is just that my personal experience is with the 5 series.

Maybe that's my aversion to EV, Hot Wheels Sizzlers of the 1970s. They ran out of juice in 5 minutes.

I wouldnít buy one now, but I appreciate the effort and desire to try to make a boring EV a bit more enjoyable to drive. If I was forced to buy an EV (and for some reason could not buy a used ICE), as an enthusiast it would be at the top of my list.

No amount of fake noise or electric horsepower can interest me in buying another EV. Had a Taycan, was boring as hell. Wife had a Mach E GT performance edition, boring as hell.

Wonít make the mistake again, manual ICE until itís unavailable.

If you have to have one, just wait a year or 2 and get it for 50% off. They are junk, btw.
