Man the exhaust on that was so friggin awesome. It burbled alot, zero drone. downshifts had the crackling sound I love so much. I hate to admit but it sounded better than my M50i...ok not by much. But my M50i sound great at startup and in Sport plus it does have more burps and crackles but not enough imo.

I have a 2020 X5 40i M Sport and the exhaust sound is disappointing. Only the drivers side flap is open on start up and for most of the time. I used my Carly app to open passenger side and then unplugged it. Still sounds like blah. I had a 2016 X5 50i m will need to put some $$$ into an exhaust system to make it sound good and even then, it will not sound like a V8. Now my X3M....great sound but still not a V8 either.
