qotd fake exhaust on evs yay or nay

Following Matt's post about Borla making fake exhaust systems for EVs, I have to ask...yay or nay?

This QOTD doesn't need a lot of words of introduction. Just, if you owned an EV, would you consider doing this? Would it matter if the EV was sporty, like a Mach-E GT, or not?

Or is this just a dumb way to try to hold on to the past as we move into an electrified future?

Sound off below.

    Double "nay" each to an EV and to the stupid fake exhaust.

    ABSOLUTELY! Also, As a middle aged man, I use cards on my bicycle spokes to pretend I'm riding a motorcycle.

    Mazda can make a killing copywriting their "Zoom...Zoom" commercial ;)

    Only if the particular electric car identifies itself as an ICE vehicle. Otherwise, no.
