Well, the drive home was great! Didn't have the radio on at all!!

The noise on startup is a fair bit louder than before - a deeper V8 rumble. A light push on the throttle creates a raspy thrum. A firmer push of the pedal makes for an impressive growl - about 3000 rpm. When the throttle is released there is a lovely pop and crackle. And all this before you even engage the gears!!!

The noise pulling away and giving it the beans is fab - you may have heard the noise made by the F-Type R (same engine) - well, blend that with the noise made by the C63, albeit a little quieter. I understand the noise will soften a bit as the internals get a layer of soot....

Anyway - rather noisier than I was expecting, the videos don't do volume any justice. The noise in the cabin is so much louder. I drove through the fine streets of Stratford upon Avon and people certainly hear you coming.

Tomorrow I shall video the exhaust properly!!

Here you go - sound not the best as I used the internal mic on the DSLR. Lots of seagull noise, but it gives you an idea. About 1/3 throttle pulling away.

New rear Brake discs and pads, a paint repair job where there was a rubbish Smart repair before.

At half term I'm hoping to machine polish it (like the SV8 last year).

Along with plenty of snorty pipe music!!

I am still yet to listen to the sound clip.

I'm in a cottage near Whitby with minimal signal.

However, I will be preparing the 'robe, so it had better be robeworthy!
