If you were to sit me blindfolded in a 335* and start it, I'm 100% sure I could tell which one I'm in by the engine noise at idle. It's nothing like the racket the old mondeo diesel I used to have made, but there is still a slight diesel noise.

I'm not saying the diesel is a bad car, quite the opposite, I was highly impressed by how far diesel engines have come, I just prefered the petrol thats all.
Quite agree.

There are lot's of reasons to choose diesel.

The soundtrack is a VERY good reason to choose petrol
