But why settle for just "a little Diesel like"? I want an F30 328i that sounds like an old Detroit Diesel 8V71 with a 13-speed manual transmission. Those engines made glorious sounds back in the 1970's. I think I want speakers both inside and outside of the car to broadcast those sounds to everyone outside.
