Hey everyone I've got the Ghibli Q4, sometime when I up-shift or downshift or just simple rev up the car in park in sport mode I get a little loud pop out of the exhaust. To me it feel like its might be shooting a little flame... so my question is, does anyone know or seen the Q4 shooting flames or am i imagining things ?

Thanks

Would be very cool but I doubt it.

I think to you do that you have to rev the engine to cause the catalytic converters to reach a high enough temperature to set any unburnt fuel alight on its way out of the exhaust.


The petrol Ghiblis do produce some lovely exhaust crackles and pops though.
