Can you make a Diesel sound a little better?

Im getting a bit post happy. :-)

Just wondered if there is any way of making the 1.9 Dci sound a little better? Im not too fussed about performance gains, just would be interested to know if there is any point fitting a new exhaust?

Thanks

Best advice for Megane owners: sell it before it bankrupts you!

I have a twin exhaust, I like how it sounds, it's not a petrol car tho so it does still sound like a diesel..lol
Also I like the sound of ram air filters the ones that have a good suck sound, think that's a good option, only for the noise tho, as far as filters go sticking a panel filter in is apparently a much better option... I'll try get a vid of my exhaust and post it up for you to see what you think..

Ok thanks, that would be useful! I've got a pipecross filter on the way as well so hopefully might help!
