That's not fair - 126s become more quiet the faster they go.

You can't hear the motor at idle either. Many times i've looked at the tach just to be sure the motor's running! They just don't build'em like they used to...

My wife's new Honda CRV is noisy as hell on the road. Tires yes, but it's not near as well insulated as the Benz. Firewall not insulated either so you hear the engine.
