    I really can't believe this is a thing :blink:

    Fake engine noises? Must be like playing Gran Tourismo on the playstation :bleh:

    If my car had this, disabling it would be the first thing I'd do!

    Popped into the dealer.
    Disconnected while I waited.
    TOTALLY BRILLIANT MOD makes the car even better without that false, grinding, vibrating, gearbox shot, noise.

    I have the 184 diesel and love it when in sport mode, I can convince myself that I have a Cupra ST

    Hi guys,

    Where’s the sound actuator on Carista? I can’t find it unless it’s on the beta version?

    Don't hate it, don't love it. But I do like it.

    I haven't got one on my 184FR, but need to check to see if there's a plug for one tucked away. If there is one, I'm tempted to get one off eBay!

    Hate it! Had my Copra less than 24 hours before I (did the less than 1 spanner job and) unplugged it.

    I'm looking forward to turning this off tonight with my new Carista so I can finally give Cupra mode a go without being deafened!

    I think that its is good, looking to buy the carista OBD device and hopefully increase the sound when in comfort mode using gears mode D, also would be good to increase the level if at anytime using gear mode S as well.

    Not a fan of the Soundaktors sound on the Cupra300 but I love the synthetic intake sound on the Golf R's! You reckon swapping over the Soundaktor from the Golf R would replicate it in the Cupra? pretty sure it has never been done before?

    I didn't even know this was a thing.
    Rather chavy if you ask me. What happened to engines sounding like engines and not having to rely on fake soundtracks?

    I do like the Soundaktor in the Golf R. The Soundaktor in my 290 GPF Cupra sounds very similar but I still find it intrusive. My previous 280 SC Soundaktor was infuriating though!

    Does the 184 have one? I have Carista, and there is no option to disable it on my car. I have also driven it in all different settings, and there is no difference in sound between sport and any of the other modes.
