If I remeber correectly, in the Uk at least, Volvo won't let you diable their chime - which really wound me up when I put my laptop on the seat of an S40 hire car - and the thing thought it was a passenger and chimed all the way home until I realised what had set it off! Apart from that, I think Ford Mondeo's have the nicest chime - it sounds more like an airplane: "Ding, this is your captain speaking ding!" For some reason, several passengers in my 9-3 have commented recently that they think my indicators make a nice noise. Well I don't think they're audio-fetishists, but there are all sorts of odd people out there....!
