    Just bought my first 350 cdi
    Drives beautifully but it seems a noisy engine compared to my old 3.0 Audi tdi.
    Is this cdi engine normally on the noisy side?.
    Cheers John

    Welcome, Johno, not heard of the 350 cdi, engine being particularly noisy, I don't think mine is, but I've never heard or driven an Audi 3.0 tdi to compere. :)

    I think the Mercedes diesel engines are slightly more vocal than other makes of diesel, except for an FX taxi from the 70s.
    Compared to my Renault diesel the CDi is a lot louder.

    Hello John and welcome. I've never thought of the 350 engine as noisy but like Tony above, I've never driven an Auto 3.0l

    Welcome from another E350CDI, noise has never been an issue with mine.
