This EV has really loud fans! B9TL's sound very nice when their cooling fans are on which is very rare. Last one I got was EV5 4/5 years ago. Early upload because will be away for few days. Dublin Bus EV42 [07-D-30042 ] 16 towards Dublin Airport Recorded: Last Tuesday.

AV345 can be heard loudly climbing Kiltipper Way at the start of the vid. If you listen carefully, it makes a whine before changing gear along with a nice turbo leak in the background which is much louder when not roaring. With the incoming summer timetables, AV345 and the other DBK AV's may be stored/withdrawn for good :-( 54A from Kiltipper Way to Tallaght Main Street.

*Headphone users - Beware!!* As seen in the video AV250 was being a rebel and causing the driver to go mad at it!😖 A few stops after I got on, the doors started causing problems, then apparently the horn got stuck which was really annoying after a while!

)Apologies for the noise( AV255 has nice high revs when taking off. Only a few stops down but this bus is very thrashy. 1:10 reminds me of AV216. Fans at 1:48.

Here we have aggressive sounding epic AV347. 347 is the best sounding 03 AV in my opinion .

My first video of a 2005 AV. They sound a lot like the 2003/4's but are a bit dull. AV419 used to be a Wedding bus before being repainted into fleet standard. Dublin Bus AV419 [05-10419] S/Hill ADL ALX400 Volvo B7TL 2005 16 towards Ballinteer.

About 2 weeks ago you may have seen my vid of troublesome AV250. AV250 wasn't going anywhere, so I waited for the next 15B to Stocking Avenue if it was an AV. It turned out to be AV252! AV252 has a loud diff along with whistling speakers which makes a really nice sound. Note at 3:05 it didn't down shift to 1st gear. AV'/AX's only downshift after that slight Rev few seconds later. The best part was when the driver let me in the driver seat and explained all the controls! 2/08/16. 2:19 - Really lovely sound! 3:30+ - Hill Climb

Here's some footage of AV238 using kickdown. This has a gorgeous idle and some slipping when taking off in first gear. Also plenty of roaring. I accidentally deleted the original videos so the quality is a bit poor. Enjoy! :D 130 to Castle Avenue. Euro III Volvo B7TL ALX400 2002 Clontarf | 02-D-10238 Recorded: 14/09/16

After a short holiday, I'm back with this vid of AV245 on the 49. This was withdrawn in October, only 1 year after its repaint. This bus has a lovely ZF that can be heard as it goes from 2-3. Hill climb from 2:54. Cheers to Dennis Trident for the tip off! This footage was taken shortly after his vid (2 months old) of AV245 :D 49 From Ballycullen to Ballycragh.

Not the best of (sound/video) quality as I'm using another camera for now. Was able to get this remaining R/End AV but haven't seen 230, 245-249 lately. Best parts: Cooling fans - 1:44-1:50-223, 8:53-9:20, 10:28-*. Nice take off - 2:42, 5:54, 6:34, 9:35.

This was recorded in 23rd August last year. This is one of my favourite 02's. It sounds very nice when taking off and has Kickdown as can be heard in this video. The quality is poor and sadly I couldn't get a better video because this was withdrawn earlier then I expected. Hope you enjoy! 130 Clontarf road to Fairview.

After a long time of no videos, here's AV246 on/off roaring on the 65(rare) with a pro driver. Seen this arriving as 65B so I waited for about 30-40 mins but paid of in the end! This over heats a lot so it's fans go on/off the ought the video while being thrashed. (Apologies for the video quality, the 65 is very busy at peak times unfortunately) Best parts: 5:40 - 6:22, 6:52 - 8:22, 10:00 - * Hill Climb; 7:15 - 8:22 65 Templeogue to Tallaght Main Street.

This one sounds almost identical to an 02! Has the 02ish idle and it's turbo is similar to the one on AV282.

Unfortunately due to the audio setting, the audio quality is poor. This EV sounded like it was slipping. It was really sluggish and restricted to only 2nd gear. Driver can be heard calling control centre at 1:21. At 5:50 the driver was able to magically fix it and after that it goes back to standard. Some good examples of it slipping are: 1:39-2:12, 2:19-4:10, 4:44-4:55 Details: Dublin Bus Enviro 400 Volvo B9TL (EV1-8 (can't remember)) Recorded: May 17, 2015
