IMO it's an example of the seemingly small, intangible things that add to the enjoyment of a vehicle. To each his own I suppose. And one of the reasons I now drive a VW R.
Although I suppose with a VW you'll have the hood open so often that it might be rather more important. :-P
That said the newer sky-active designs appear to be really nice, but lack the power I look for.
