Default Best Sounding Exhaust?

Found this while house keeping data storage. My old PF S8 on the Nurburgring. I miss that car!

You need sound!

Ooh I like that! Thats a much deeper tone than I usually hear from D2s, almost like an AMG sort of sound.

Ooooh, interesting! says Johnny quattro.

Perhaps a tad raucous for my A8L but on a connected theme, has anyone here on the A8 forum fitted a throaty exhaust (Magnaflow et al.) but with some electronics to control valves that make the exhaust quieter or louder?

I have a request to do that, but haven't had a chance yet. Probably a project for '21.

That's a very good spot to view cars on the Nurburgring.
Shame they wouldn't let us on this time last year eh Mike?
