      When I first had the car literally first day and was "testing" the car and "demonstrating" the car to all the lads I work with... they described the turbo when it kicked in sounding like the car draggin a bag of gravel.

          Yeah thas normal, i love the sound of the turbo winding up about 3000rpm like you say. Sounds like you`ve got a jet engine under the bonnet and it could take off at any minute

            i noticed this sound around 2000 miles!
            sounds ace to me.
            seemed a little strange that it took 2000 to get so loud.

                Did you have the dbilas without an exhaust?? if so, does it make much of a difference sound wise??

                  i love that whining sound in second gear. it always puts a big smile on my face.

                    Sound of a turbo spooling up is great

                    Although a nice V6 sounds good as well.........V6 turbo anyone

                        I think Clarkson described it as a "Bag Of Gravel" on Top Gear! By the way, anybody watching it tonight as they are showing the hamster's crash!!!!!
