I agree with everything Fraser states above... the only thing I miss is the sound of my old V8 S4 Avant. The real downside is that the S4 only did 280 miles to a tank - the A5 3.0TDi sounds more like a V6 petrol once the engine is warm and easy does 500 miles.

P.S. In the UK we also use "Imperial" measurements (miles, litres etc) ;)

Your right - diesels do sound more rattly upon start up. The A5 TDi is pretty quiet compared to the likes of BMW and Mercedes diesels though. With regard to mid-range power you're also right, turbo diesels have significantly more torque than petrol engines and are particularly quick in the 40 to 100mph range. Because of the increased torque you don't need to change down gears as often to overtake for example. I feel that in the mid range my A5 3.0Tdi is pretty much as quick as my S4 V8 I had previously (if not quicker).
