Just placed an order for my first diesel.
 
A tarted up Audi Q7 , Silver on chocolate leather. Never owned a diesel before but
Got seriously hooked on that 406 lb./ft. Of god's hand at my back during the test drive.
It's primarily a kid/dog hauler with the odd long road trip thrown in. Any body have experience with the Q Ship?
Feedback appreciated.

Sounds like a nice kid/dog hauler.

Fortunately, that's yesterday's news.

Test drove both the Porsche Cayenne diesel and the Audi Q.

No clatter , no stink from either of them.

Chose the Audi or the 3rd row seating.

I don't mean to rain on your parade, it's a nice car, some diesel vehicles have good sound insulation for their occupants...,However

Sitting in traffic with semis, busses, motorhomes, delivery trucks, pickups, etc the clatter is very annoying, even deafening. I live on a connector street and have gotten tired of listening to all the clatter driving by. Ford pickups with 7.3 and 6.0 motors are terrible. Over here, we see so many 1 ton pickups with DRW out back, big exhausts, boosted turbos, etc and one person in the cab using as their daily commuter makes very little sense with the increased engine price, maintenance costs, fuel price, etc.

But for the rest of us around diesel vehicles, especially in stop and go traffic and LSD fuel, cat pee injection, still stink. Was sitting behind a new VW TDI the other day and ended up shutting off my car's ventilation to avoid breathing it. My buddies wife won't let her husband park his new TDI in their garage because of the exhaust smell which eventually even gets into their house.

So I'm only for diesels in large commercial/construction vehicles that need tremendous torque. You guys on your side of the pond can suit yourselves, over here diesel cars aren't popular, thankfully, IMO.

Just my .02, spend it anyway you want

You might be thinking of my old Benz diesel, but the newer ones are pretty much air purifiers and noise absorbers:lol3

A lot of people say you've got Ford's best diesel engine ever, esp the later ones

a1fa 01-24-2013 08:21 PM

Let's see some pictures of the Audi Terrytori..

You're so right, the newer ones MBs are much improved as some others and that Q car is quite a car

I've been generalizing quite a bit about all diesels, just tired of them in general, not to mention there's a lot of gas motors making big power now with good gas mileage to boot like the new C7 Vette

I got an 02 7.3l. It's loud, it's rough, it stinks and I love it. Programmer, exhaust, intake, turbo = :clap

We are ruining Terrytori's parade... This is his Audi Q7 TDI thread.
