This is not a recent review (about a month old), but if you are looking for delightful exhaust sounds, and fantastic country scenery, this is one fun video. You probably won't learn anything new, but I just came back and watched, and enjoyed it, a second time.

Yes! Thanks. Exhaust sounds great. I ordered the dual mode exhaust, albeit with automatic. Do you think it will sound anything like this when using the paddles?

Yes, if your use your driver mode selector (DMS) and place it in track mode OR if you "latch" your exhaust mode in its loudest setting so that whatever DMS mode you later choose, the car is always in the loudest (track) exhaust setting. By the way, as per your DMS selection choices, or again by latching, you get to choose how "brisk" your automatic's shifting is.

Latching is where, via the driver information center (DIC), you select any feature you want, and that feature stays selected, even if you change the DMS, until you choose to go back info the DIC, and change it. For example, if you latch the exhaust into it's loudest setting, even if your turn the car off or on, the exhaust will always stay in its the loudest exhaust setting -- until you back into the DMS and tell the car to revert the exhaust system to its being automatically connected to the DMS again. -- as it comes from the factory. This is true of every latchable component, e.g., steering sensitivity, shock firmness settings, etc., etc.

There are two exceptions to this. First if you totally run down the battery, the car will revert to its factory settings. Second if you temporarily set the traction management controls into a "less safe mode" when you are tracking your car, such as choosing to turn off traction control, the car will not keep those "less stable" stability systems when you turn the car off. This is to prevent someone else, perhaps the next morning, grabbing the same key fob, with that person not knowing those traction control systems have been turned off, from getting into trouble.

I feel like a dummy but is all this true if I don't have the Z51 option?

Yes. There are some functions you obviously lose the ability to set or "latch" without Z-51, such as the ability to adjust the eLSD, but many functions such as steering inputs, exhaust loudness, active fuel management (on or off), and others are totally independent of whether you have Z-51.

Thank you very much. One more question...How the heck do you know all this stuff?
