Agreed, if I had to choose one setting, it would be open. I like having the option to keep it quiet at times, especially when I am in public garages (as it generally ignites car alarms!), or near police and such.

My only peeve with the valve feature is that it works on vacuum, which takes time to build, so when you start the car for the first several seconds it is always loud before vacuum builds to close the valve. There is a Maserati that parks fairly close by, and for some reason that car doesn't like the sound of my car waking up, its alarm goes haywire. Owner must hate me
