I have a 2001 bmw e39 530d 193hp stock.
When I bought it last year the sound from the engine wasn't as pronounced as it is now. The gar gar gar sound diesels make. It is quite loud now. The car is straight piped as it was before and has sweet sound at the back, but at the front it sounds too loud like tractor.
Stock map, egr off, straight piped but it was quiter before.
Sounds normal? I also feel like it kicked me back into seats before when full throttle, now it feels slower, harsher to drive.
In video the car is fully warm. It's more worse when cold.
