    Strange knocking noise

    Hi all, this only started yesterday and came from no where. Driving my s3 get to between 40-50mph as soon as i left of the accelerator i hear a knocking noise and the noise slows down as the speed of the car does. Any ideas??

    Thought I'd add that the noise to me is coming from the middle, seems like the back of the engine. Also I can feel the vibrations through the pedals and slightly off the floor.

    I had a similar noise and could work out what it was, ended up being 2 loose wheel nuts... Check that as it a easy fix...
