Default Turbo Diesel

Driving a TDI golf around here in Germany for the vacation, extremely peppy and am considering to find some diesel turbo in the states. That will be hard to find I suspect... most sport cars in America are gas eaters. What sport diesels do we have?


So fresh when I wake up in the morning.... MMMMM

That will be all,


scchhhappssss,

I don't know if the motor is the same, but we have VW diesel cars in the states. With a manual transmission, they are quite fun to drive while still getting really good mileage.

I'm just waiting for the SQ5 to come to the states.

Love my 335d. Wish it came with a manual gearbox but with that much torque I would be running through the gears way too fast!

For a DD, I don't know about a 1 series, I think they might be a bit small.

Default Re: Turbo Diesel

According to Inside Line, their Jetta TDI feels like a diesel. Meaning that it's not one of the more refined diesels out there.
