    I've heard both the A8 Challenger and Charger Hellcat. I don't recall there being much of a difference from my M6. I am a little disappointed in the exhaust note after hearing all the glowing comments on it. It's not as loud or as deep as I expected. And, it's quite a bit softer than the exhaust I had on the 2012 SuperBee. Oh well, it just gives me something else to put on my list of mods.

    It should pop like a gun when throttled.....check that you're in track mode and using the only key the gave you - the red one

    Mine is an A8 Charger and sounds amazing. I had a comment from a friend of mine that heard my car 1/2 mile away and said it sounded like a top fuel dragster. I was at full throttle. Amazing sound.

    Thats odd... At the track, all my friends said my M6 was way louder making a pass than the other A8 Cats they had heard... They said it was a noticeable difference...

    It certainly takes all kinds to make the world go around. For some, obviously, importance is personified by appearing to be the biggest and baddest on the block. For others the understated look and resonance under normal driving conditions, along with knowing what's under the hood without neon signs heralding the arrival, satisfies to levels unthinkable to the "main street stars".

    These are special machines we are lucky enough to own. Rattling neighborhoods and pedestrians only perpetuates the less than stellar image many muscle car people would like to enjoy.

    Wonderful about mods and "go fast" appliques. Indulge and over indulge and then take it to the track and let your action speak louder than your unbaffled straight three inch Borla. Howl there over the jubilant crowd noise...then, "the Lions in their den will tremble at your approach".
