Remember, the (UK) law stating that all electric vehicles must now make noise does not state which noise the vehicle has to make.

@Rika may I recommend "never gonna give you up" ?

@Rika Considering the history of personalized ringtones I would guess that by 2040 all electric cars will just be vibrating.

@Rika setting it to Gas Gas Gas and thriving in the irony

@Rika hoofbeats!

(But seriously, I hope this wouldn't become widespread if the goal is making the street environment safer for disabled or vulnerable road users..

@Rika hearing Darude - Sandstorm approaching seconds before your crossing of the road is rudely interrupted.

@Rika Not sure what's more cursed, the rumbling of repeated "Deja Vu" samples as the vehicle drifts into view or knowing that several electric car are nearby having a race out-of-sight based on hearing the first few notes of Megalovania repeated with angry goose noises then overtaking them

@hokaze You absolutely know I have bought another one of those modules to do this now.

Thankfully they are super easy to swap out, so I can bench it for experimentation and then install in the car.

@Rika Thanks, I hate/love it
