you can run but you cant hide (coz i can hear you) :lol: :lol:\\chrome// said:From outside yes it sounds like a diesel ( pretty quiet for a diesel though). From Inside you can barely tell. **goes and runs for cover from the petrol mafia :lol: **
I think that may be an exaggeration. From my experience with a mk5 golf 140 and 170 you'll only notice it's a diesel when idling, especially on start up. I don't think you'll be p****d off, especially with all the torque available.DaveR said:Hi I have one of these on order - purchasing without testing the TDI. However somewhere on this site it states that the engine sounds like a London Cab... Any comments please - I will be well p****** off if this is the case ...
Is this true?? I would have thought that the final gearing of both the diesel and petrol would be the same as they both use common gearbox whether that be manual or DSG. AFAIR only the 1.4 has a different DSG box.. presuamambly to give it more relaxed cruising potential from the smaller engine.ANDRES said:you can tell its diesel from inside when staying still, and you cant tell when you're moving as it is a silent engine.. on the autobahn the diesel is quieter than the petrol and at 150 kmh you can only hear the wind and the road noise (whilst in the petrol youll hear the engine buzzing as it is on higher rpm)
the cabin is well insulated
can something sound silent??\\chrome// said:The diesel sounds silent on the motorway - partly because it is quite but also as there is some road noise in all Sciroccos. Id like to try some different tyres and see if this eliminates some road noise but thats another thread all together....
So to sum up, diesels are great! :lol:
