2006 Mercedes-Benz S350 Q&A

2006 Mercedes-Benz S350 Question: My car is no longer the quiet ride that it used to be. A bit throaty, why?

It sounds a bit more like a race car than a luxury sedan. The tires are fine, although I do need to balance the tires. But its not that kind of noise, seems more like engine. -
