I unplugged the sound generator by slipping an allen key through the grill under the wipers. Absolute sinch to do. Good luck plugging it back in that way though.

It is so much better without it. Does anyone actually like that thing? It was obscuring all the actually nice sounds that the engine makes. There's actually turbo noises! Would never have known with that silly thing barking over the top of it.

It is beyond me how the N division allows such a thing to be installed in their cars. Some gamer at Hyundai who has never driven a car would be behind it, i'd say.

Makes a huge difference unplugging it on the i30N as well.

Stupid idea but Hyundai aren't alone with it.

Thanks for the hint. The sound generation is an obnoxious joke.

Ah, I always thought we were able to do that :)
But how did you manage to insulate the loose connectors?

Would the male part of this fit the car's female plug, to seal it up?

Could just put a baloon over it and keep it tight with a cable tie
