I have the above car and to be honest its quite a noisy car, quite a bit of engine noise within the cabin. Went in a colleagues 53 1.8 tdci and was completely different, could hardly hear a thing, which is similar driving experience to our other 1.6 tdci zetec 58 reg.
Wondered if my 1.8 noise is normal for that age/model/engine, ie was noise muffling skimped on or was the engine not a great one, or should I get a dealer opinion?
Any comments appreciated

Even though this is regarding a more modern car, it may be the same issue:

Thanks for that - its not wind noise, definitely engine noise ie can hear more of the engine than in our 1.6 or friends 1.8 53 reg
