    cold air means denser air which increases performance ever so slightly. maybe this is the cause of a louder exhaust.


    other then that i can't help u!

    The darkness also heightens your sense of hearing.

    Sometimes colder, or feels like it.

    Being in a tunnel will also make your exhaust sound louder lol :O

    I know what you mean, when my cars cold in the mornings it sounds very raspy and not as deep/loud as usual, but after some driving it's fresh, also when i have drove for quite some time, turn car off for 5mins or so and start it again it sounds like raspy and weak again, like as if it doesn't want you to rev it lol.. Full S/S exhaust btw.

    Same, probably down to running richer/pipe temperature.
