Just got my '06 CS last weekend but haven't driven a manual in over 10 years! So I've been driving around my neighborhood after I put my 2 yr old daughter to bed, which is around 9pm, so I can get back into driving a sick and be comfortable with the Cayman's clutch-point.
There are two key points: 1) The CS I just bought has a Tubi exhaust. 2) I've been practicing my start-stop on a small hill in the neighborhood.
Well, a few neighbors actually drove up to me last night while I was driving to tell me to stop because the car was too loud that it woke up their kids! One of them even said he's been listening to me drive the car for weeks, when the truth is I've only been driving the car for 7 days. (Probably feels like weeks given how loud the Tubi is...)
Now, I actually don't like this particular aftermarket exhuast (can't stand the drone) and am waiting for the previous owner to get me the original stock exhaust. And I'm a family man myself. But to go out of your way at night to track me down is really something! The car certainly isn't as loud as the train that goes by every night! Some people just have nothing better to do than try to spoil our fun.
I can't wait until I'm good enough to stop practicing!
