Absolutely right. They might be powerful car, but they remain diesel cars with all their positive but also all their negative sides.
THe engineers can ad as many turbos as they want, the sound of these engines will still be sh....
And....let's be honest, he who can afford an 80K+ car will be able to pay the price for a few litters more in terms of consumption....and get the sound on top.
