Which is quieter, a VW Golf TDI or Jetta TDI?

For those who own one of these cars and have ridden in the new ones, which is quieter? I was reading the noise level improvements for the new Golf TDI but the Jetta TDI doesn't mention anything about noise levels. Since the engine is the same, it should come down to the car.

I can only speak about the Golf, haven't been in a new Jetta yet. But in my Golf, the engine noise is pretty much a non-issue. Not noisy inside at all. On the Golf, the biggest noise issue is road or tire noise. The stock Contis are fine on nice, new pavement - very quiet in fact. But on worn, cobbled pavement they roar petty badly. For my uses, that's my only complaint with the Contis. They are LRR (for a wide tire, anyway), handle, ride and drive fine. But too noisy on less than perfect pavement. No way I'd buy another set when these are done.
