Couple of recent sounds from the S3 (now I've decided to keep the damn thing!);
- revving above 3k when cold (rarely do it, just noted it the other day), I can hear a tinny, metallic sound - sounds like the exhaust is very cold but haven't noticed it before... goes away when it warms up... doesn't sound rattly, like anything is loose though? It sounds like someone revving a really cold car on one of those "look at my new M3 I'm about to break due to revving from cold" videos on Youtube!!!
- when coming down through the gears, if I lift off in third and the revs drop it vibrates a little - it doesn't do so when gears are not engaged... gearbox? Not sure when the last gearbox oil change was done, so would you lot suggest that as my first port of call?
Will log it for errors tonight and update if anything shows.
