Exhaust Note Disappointing

Considering we ordered our F-Pace S sight unseen like most of us, we are pleasantly surprised to find little to complain about with this vehicle once it arrived. We love it. There is one disappointment... the exhaust sounds marginal from the outside and completely wimpy from the inside. This is my wife's car and she is very disappointed with the exhaust sound.

She has always rolled her eyes when I mentioned aftermarket performance exhausts on my vehicles. Not this time. She actually supports looking into performance exhaust options as soon as they are developed. You know it must be bad if my wife is complaining. Assume it will take some time for some options to develop. Have't seen anything yet.

Were you expecting the sound of a race car?

I'm not disappointed, it has a different type of growl, one that you might expect from a V-6 rather than a V-8. The aftermarket exhausts when they are available will make you happy but beware of the drone.

Check out these guys if you are looking for an amazing exhaust. http://www.quicksilverexhausts.com I already contact them and they said they should have an exhaust system soon . You can hear some of their exhaust in many of the luxury cars that they make them for on the site . If you want to hear their exhaust on a F type YouTube.... seen through glass.

My concern was the opposite after reading and seeing videos on the F Pace. I do not want an every day driver with exhaust noise . When I test drove one about a month ago I was pleased that the sound was muted.

Thanks. I will check this out. My other car is an F-Type R, so I might have unrealistic expectations!

People, the exhaust sound in an S is excellent! According to reviewers, it is better than in the Macan I have to agree because I drove both the Macan S and Turbo without the expensive exhaust sound add-on. The f-Pace is much better.

Perhaps you are still in the break-in period and your wife hasn't exactly floored it yet. Gotta get the RPMs up, bro. Yesterday, I put mine in Dynamic and then turned the dial to "S". OMG! Using the paddles and a very heavy, there is all kinds of noise, so much so, people on foot were turning around and tracking my car, as I drove past.

The exhaust has to break-in, too...it'll sound best after ~500 miles.

Dynamic Mode button (checkered flag) + Sport Mode on transmission selector dial + using paddle shifters should get you to where you want to go with the exhaust note.

Broke in my headlights and tail lights, now they shine brighter...

Currently waiting for my wheels to break in, heard that could take up to 2000 miles.

The picture you included says it all-love it. Your new jag's engine is a baby and with TLC during the break in your cat's growl will develop. It is a different sound than the V-8 in my XF. Unique to the F-Pace.
