    I was driving home the other day and took a phone call from a friend to vent about work-related issues. I floored it once the light turned green, and he asked me if I was having fun flooring it in my car!

    Apparently, he was able to hear the futuristic "whirr" of the motor over the hands-free bluetooth connection. I had no idea that small sound could be picked up so well! Anyone else have similar experiences?

    For the record, my motor is still running as silently as it was on day one when I picked it up brand new last October, so it's not like the motor's dying, emitting more noises than normal, or anything like that.
