That's awesome. Thanks for sharing, great set up. I'm not necessarily trolling for more video, but, how does it sound inside at idle, at full throttle, and cruising on the highway- big changes?

Wow, that sounds amazing. Perfect amount of low grumble and not obnoxious noise for no reason!

Dumb question, what are the exact steps for launching the S8?

The difference is negligible from the inside...I had to roll the windows down to hear the increased sound. Iíll record a couple more vids next time I drive it.

Thanks, and thatís exactly what I wanted. Iíd read in other forums that removing the mid muffler would get more sound, but I donít think I need to. Maybe the sport exhaust helps out, but idk because I havenít been able to find the differences between the regular and sport options.

To launch...
1-sport mode
2-turn off stability control
3-left foot firmly on brake
4-right foot on gas
5-hold on and let foot off brake

It was in the manual for my S5...havenít checked to see if itís in the S8 manual

My understanding exactly. Hold both pedals for about 1.5 seconds, RPMs should level off. Release and 🚀

Any particular rev range to hold or just floor it?

Only other exhaust note I've seen good reviews of is the Miltek exhaust. It does sound A LOT more aggressive and gives it more of an animal vibe! Probably too much IMO.


This one gives a rough comparison. Sounds crazy.

That is insane. If only that were the difference between comfort and dynamic settings...
