    Strange noise..

    This has happened twice in the past few days, driving along at no real speed (50km/hr) and I hear something that resembles driving over a large object, almost sounds like its caught in the guard, seems to come from the rear wheel on the passenger side... I checked the road, and its smooth with nothing on it, no pot holes or anything obvious.

    It happened again this morning, its a hell of a sound! Extremely loud, even with the soundsystem pumped, I could hear it clearly...

    Got under the car, couldnt seen any leaks or visable damage from anything, just looked all normal

    Any ideas? I know its a long shot [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Its a 03 spec Audi S3

    i know this is a silly question but is the wheel done up tight? If the studs have come loos u get a sound similar... but not when accelerating or braking...

    I was going to say, have you checked for a dead body under the car, but yours is better.

    Sorry S8n.
