2.0 out of 5 stars Soundracer V8, 19 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: SoundRacer : V8 (Audio CD)
Bought as a stocking-filler for fellow petrol-head cousin, so thought it would be worth a try for a laugh. Tunes in quickly and easily, but not very convincing, and that's with a pretty good FM stereo setup (appreciated, not the total point, but...).

The main problem is that synchronisation with the ignition system is poor - lags behind gear shifts, but - and that's when the beginnings of a smile disappeared - has a will of its own stopped at lights or at a junction. It free-wheels up the rev scale, becoming an annoying and potentially dangerous distraction, as you can't tell what the real engine's up to.

Certainly, well over-priced for the result, and isn't very robust. One of my lower scores, I'm afraid. Looks like cousin will be getting something else for better value.

Sorry for your bad luck with SoundRacer! As our website Listed cars shows, SoundRacer works fine in about 85% of the 450 car models tested and reported. Not many car accessories fit in 100% of all cars, they are all different, that's the problem. See also SoundRacer website for info. Suggestion: Check manufacturer website before buying a car accessory to see if it fits your car. It can help avoid disappointments. And if you tell the car models (and year) it will help us and other customer.
