I know from other posts that both engines are very smooth and quiet during normal driving, but how does the engine sound when you stomp the throttle and crank it up to redline? How's the exhaust note? The sound from the cabin? All opinions welcome. 8)

The 2.3 sounds very nice.... the 2.0 sounds like any other unbalanced base model 4 cylinder engine.... like crap! LOL 8) Seriously though, I beat the hell out of a 2.0 (story goes like this: the dealer gave us a 3i to drive home so I could pick up the car I might trade in). And that car is nothing like the 2.3 in terms of refinement. It was like day and night!! The 2.0 was vibrating making all kinds of wierd noises.. very American car like. The 2.3 on the other hand.... Smmoooth as Butta. :p
