The V8 at least from 2013-2016/17 is noticeably a Jeckyll and Hyde at the press of the 'goggle' symbol as my daughter calls it!

Re: Exhaust Note

The dealer checked the battery circuit, says the battery is good, and they can’t find anything wrong. They reset the battery control module. Checking today, I h...
