What was the month of manufacture? IIRC, this enforcement came into effect from July 2019. Either that, or Jaguar found a clever way to implement it by visuals over audio.

All cars now have the speed warning and all have different implementations. But Mercedes has taken things a bit too far IMO. You're listening to music and cruising on the highway when you cross 80 km/h and the music suddenly mutes and there is a warning chime, after which, the music starts again. After a few seconds, this repeats and every few seconds the music will mute, the warning will chime and music will play again. You then speed up a little and cross 120 km/h.
Congrats on an unusually quick turnaround!

Those speed beeps are a deal breaker for me especially in this type of implementation

At this price point, having fake exhaust vents rather than functional ones is not a good design theme.
The same fake exhausts trend seems to be implemented in the new Q3 as well.
