    I was on 35E around 9:00 last night, and this jet-lie sounds came behind me w/ about 40 bikers. At 35E & 183 merging point, my car start resonnating because of this jet-sound, not high pitch, rather deep bass sound. I looked the side, and there was Gallardo. The sound was causing unbearable vibe in my car, so I had to slow down to let him pass. Then he came into ahead of me, and so I was staring its tail till I took exit to 75 (about 5 minutes).

    The car looked cool & very noticeable in yellow, but it must be resonnating all cars running by its side whenever it is acceralating, which is very annoying. I wonder my 328 is doing this to others whenever I was acceralating? Or F's 12 cylinders.

    I much prefer madly throaty deep tone of 512TR. Does Testa Rossa sounds same as 512TR? I just loved the sound of 512TR even though its was stock.

    Yoshi man a Gallardo shows up next to you and you back off. At least give him the best you got. Don't matter what it is it's still a Ferrari and it loves to play.

    I'll tell you, this I am sick of Mustangs and Corvettes I never see a Ferrari or a Lambo on the road in Atlanta so I can give it fair chase. Maybe I should move down to Fl. There are enough exotics there.

    I was fine when I was running behind it. It was when I was right next to it. Driver side of window was half way down, and it was vibrating from his exhaust note. I was in my MB ML, and bikers were on my both side of lanes, one guy one wheeling on the highway! More bikers were ahead of Gallardo, that's probably why he moved into my lane, I guess.

    There was no space to get ahead of him, so I slowed down. I never experienced my car vibrating like that due to other cars, and the noise was not comfortable to my ears either. Now if you were inside of this Gallardo, it may be a different story. That's why I was start concerning on how F cars exhaust affect other drivers' around it.

    Does anyone know 512TR & TR sounds same or different???

    That may have been my friend Keith. He has a yellow Gallardo and was at Norwoods last weekend installing a new exhaust. They had fabricated a custom piece for him and he was installing it while I was at the shop. He also has a 355B, so he's not all bad. :)

    when your driving a 328 you shouldn't try and race or "play with a newer lambo....or mustang for that matter. Just cruise along and enjoy the sights

    Yoshi,

    Have you driven your Ferrari with Ferrari club members in your area? Sounds like you've never done it before. Exhaust notes on exotics vary greatly depending on what is fitted. Yes, some can be pretty loud and annoying.
