BMW should give more options like Renault did many years ago if we go down that road..

Looks like the best the car gets is a “reduced” mode. No full on “off”

That said, it’s the 2 gran coupe, so I don’t care that much if the first version of this is flawed. Hopefully future implementations will offer a fully off mode for the sportier cars in bmws lineup.

I sure hope BMW rolls this out to other models. I'd love to hear the natural sound of the B58 in my M340i.

Absolutely hate this feature. Especially with the 4-cylinder models BMW loves to pipe in excessive amounts of fake engine noise. The 6 and 8-cylinder cars aren't as bad, but they aren't pleasing to the ear either. An off mode like Toyota or Hyundai would be preferable.

I hated it in my F80. Sounded so artificial and fake. Coded it off and liked the car again.

Yep, in the new M5 I drove it is awful, especially compared to AMG.
