    Yeah you drive a diesel and theres little you can do to hide that factor. Nor should you. If you want a more sporty sound, you could stick in a K&N filter, go for an appropriate aftermarket exaust that will produce a different note. But keep in mind diesels sound the way they do because of how they work, and while you'll never mask that sound, theres no reason you can't have a nipple tweaking rasp when you floor it.

    I used to stick lollypop sticks in my spokes when I was a kid but not sure if that would last long on a car but you could give it a go

    On a more serious note, the Audi & Pug cars sound OK 2me when they are lapping Le Mans so there must be options for you to upgrade intake & exhaust on your car.

    £££'s = sound especially on a bus powered BMW

    you will get pretty much as loud as you want and a bit more go as the systems on the 320d are quite restricted!
