the noise of the VTEC was the main consideratioin to made me bought my R... don't you think the noise of the vtec from 5300 to 8400 rpm is great?
i think the road noise are some sign for you to realize what is happening out there, presonally i like to hear that kinda noise when i am driving in some areas where i am not familiar with.
you can buy the M3 if you want comfort
by the way, the STI is very very very quiet when comparing to the R...
I like the sound of the engine and VTEC, but not the road noise.
How is the STI more quiet than the Type-R? Does that mean that the STI has SOME sound deadening?
