Where's the "pops and burbles"?

Edit: It was probably in "Normal" mode.

It sounds good but coming from an STi I'm sure gonna miss that boxer rumble. It'd make you forget you're driving around in a 4-banger...
With a nicely modded exhaust, the Subie boxer 4 has one of the best non-exotic car sounds around, IMO. Comparing the RS to the STI reminds me of the different sounds in the classic pod racing scene in Star Wars.

Why the hell would you drive this in 'normal' mode for a video? Either that or its a pre-pre-production vehicle.
Pre-production, notice the unpainted FMIC.

And he didn't do a lot of decal where you could hear anything.

My favourite external sound so far. None of that annoying blatting, smoother and deeper - perfect. Interior does seem a bit hushed compared to other recordings.

The video had me thinking 2 things throughout: 1 Damn that NB paint looks good with the black rims on the RS! 2 Damn that NB paint looks so good that it's going to stick out like a sore thumb and I am glad I went sleeper mode with the FW!
