No No, not a choice between the cars. I'm VERY happy with my 1.8t...

but, is it me, or do 1.8T's sound like a blo0ming diesel when you turn the key to start them up?

More like a nightmare you mean

I think you are getting mixed up with a nice dream and the worst possible nightmare!! [:eek:)]

They do sound very noisy on startup though.

All the 1.8T's sound like it whether it be a golf or TT. The new 2.0T GTI engine sounds like a diesel when you start it up as well

not as embarrasing as when you see that diesel badge speeding off in front you[:eek:)]

PMSL![:D]

At least when you buy a (fast) tractor, you don;t mind it sounding like one!

Get a Milltek turbo-back setup. Seriously it doesn't sound as nice a 6-cylinder car BUT it will rid you of the tractor noise upon start-up. Sad, but it is one of the principal reasons I went for the Milltek setup - to solely rid that "klat-klat" diesel noise. All 1.8Ts do it.

I had a whole bunch of mp3s where someone did a comparison. OEM exhaust, APR exhaust, Milltek Exhaust, Technics etc.. To be more precise, it was the downpipe that changed the start-up noise. I've tried searching for them again on VWVortex but they are gone. Sorry!
