Yeah, I saw that too and was hoping for a lovely pop on gear changes.

I was also hoping for a supercharger whine but I'm not sure what I'll hear, wouldn't mind some info off other 185 owners too :)

Brill! Does it sound like that video in the original post at all?

Also, can you notice the supercharger at all, when driving, I can kinda hear it in your video?

yea that would be great post up some videos! ive testdriven the 185 and yes you hear the supercharger whine at low revs and then the turbo kicks in and for a few seconds depending on where you hold the revs i heard both at the same time, to be fair it sounded brill! x

I barely hear anything, The pop noise is at the exhaust, and I think if the viedo has set the microphone at the back of the car. In the same way that the camera is professionally setup up to look at the speedo.

So I guess people outside will hear the nice pop, but I dont notice it.

The whine and hiss of the super charger and turbo charger are there in abbundance

Engine souns nce and throaty to.

It was designed to do that....

The 185 on the other hand probably not although I would have thought it would "snort" a little on the upshift and pop on the downshift.
