Hey guys , I just had my car software update , which give u press "twice" on the key and make the driver door open and press 2 sec for " passenger " door open etc

since I got the software upgrade,

1.when start the car engine it produce less RPM ,make exhaust seem less noise . (inside)

2.when driving in , N , S , T mode , it seem produce less noise , ( they said just the setting been change )

3.They cancel the " Loud Start " feature .according to my handbook page 61 I have a "Loud Start " feature

:mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:


finally I got a chance to check out the IRIS Navigation today from the Spider , they didn't give you a 3D view like "TomTom". or other Car Manufacturer..
I didn't get the chance to drive around and test it but after a year wait for the IRIS and they still could not provide something which call up-to-date navigation system? ( sigh )

How disappointed :confused::confused::confused:

Now, don't go putting them blinders on! ;)

Lest you you get too high up on your (prancing) horse, here is what a real ITALIA sounds like (no tunnel required). :) As much as I hate to give ol' Geri Harry any air time...

C'mon, that's not fair, it's akin to facing firsts serves from Andy Roddick:)

There isn't much that can topple the sound of the Zonda, except for maybe.....Alonso's F2012?

Sorry had the blinders back on momentarily:)

That Zonda is incredible, tho' I couldn't actually live with it.
With regard to loud start etc., there are so many variations now on different things that owners ought to be allowed to specify which items are changed and not simply submit to an unknown end result. Half of what we now get as an end user seems dependant upon what some journalist wrote after half a day with the car. Why can we not be allowed to keep the options we want. If some owners want no door handles and firmer paddle settings, keep the detent and loud start etc., then why not?

With you there macmadmark

Speaking recently with a McLaren employee, it seems that they are getting the message and that these things will be customer choices rather than a fixed spec.

Spent some time around the new Pagani this weekend at Pebble Beach. They're truly astounding in every way. The billet/machining for the interior is simply unmatched. I did take a pic or two and when I have a minute I'll post (mostly billet/machining details). I did hear it start and idle/rev, which was enormously impressive! Spine-tingling!

If all you want is noise, buy a Lambo.

Forget the last post!!
Th loud start has gone forever!!! This is because with the 2013 -7 emmisions control it had to be deleted if we were to get the 25hp increase.
It has been suggested in jest that you could go back to platform 8.3 and keep it ,but then you cannot have the extra power. I did waver but saw the light:D
