Smile An Interesting NOTE!

My house sits about 1 mile from the entrance of the plan of homes that I live in, up some serious hills (rough to finish my bicycle rides).

My wife and kids can easily HEAR the sub-woofer-like sounds my GT makes as soon as I turn into the plan in 2nd gear. They're usually out in the driveway to welcome me home!! My wife, Norma, can even hear me when she is on the 2nd floor in the back of the house!

Anybody else notice this beautiful sound? BTW - stock exhaust.

Yep, I love the sound of the GT with the stock pipe. It's definitely not "quiet". It makes for a great sport-tourer's pipe. Quiet enough for the long haul. Rumbles enough to let you know she's running. And from 7K on up...she growls!

That sucks! Unless you need that kinda "Hey! Look at me!" attention. You might just want to buy a Harley for that nonsense Greg.

My two youngest daughters come running out the backyard as I arrive with the LT most of the times. I bet they will all the times as soon as I have the GT

Grtz,

Have to agree with the music played by an MV. Only a Ferrari sounds better than my Brutale. Nothing like the obnoxious noise spewed by a Harley. More like music.
