Start up in Sport+ sound treat

Can't find the message again to thank, but someone allowed as how if'n you first switch on Sport+ before starting the engine, you get a small explosion of music from the exhaust. Tried it today, whoa! Only way to start up. Once warm, I also got as few nice crackles as well at it settled down. This will definitely get all the girls. Thanks to whoever posted this!

It was me and you're welcome....!


Ignition to position two, then Dynamic Select to Sport+ mode


THEN ignite the engine!

Ah, thanks again. What a find. Quite a snort indeed. That's why you get the big bucks, I guess. Can't wait until 5:00 this morning to test it again. Kinda reminds me of my old 1966 Shelby GT-350. Moms would call in the kids and close the blinds and dogs went under the porch when I lit it up.

Demonstrated this a couple of times at the Dallas chapter of MBCA's annual picnic to the delight of all. Again, great find @MarkChat!

Works best when warm. Otherwise it stays revved up for about 20 seconds and you don't get the crackles.
