DMF's are used for a reason , to reduce vibration and smooth out the drive train so giving you a more pleasant drive.
You may find as others have regreting putting in a solid flywheel and have even taken the solid one out again and replaced with a DMF.

Yeah you can get away with SMFs on petrols, but SMFs on diesels generally cause more problems then the supposed gain.
