    Cheers Tony, good find

    As fascinating as the i8 is, I do prefer the M1

    Absolutely, the noise from a "speaker" can't beat the noise from 2 twin pipes.
    The i8 is pretty cool and really a car of the future.

    I suspect the I8 beats the M1 hands down, but I'd sooner own the M1.

    If my number comes up!!

    I'm not sure if I like the idea of not getting the actual engine sound, even if it's a 3 cylinder. Just stick A CD of engine sounds in the player. Be cheaper and just as inaccurate. Fake sounds don't do it, it's like a faked orgasm for the ears and I'd rather get to the real thing. JIM
