Hello all, picked my S3 up last night and am thouroughly chuffed with it. Just a small niggle that i thought i would share to see if anyone had any ideas about, hoping it may be a known problem.
The car runs like a dream no rattles when stone cold and certainly no lack of power, when i turn the engine off however there's a distinct rattle from around the front right of the engine bay - my first thought cam chain tensioner (would this show up on vag.com?)
But it could also be a known weak heatshield vibrating as the engine stops, or clutch bearing etc?
Will put up some pics of the motor and spec etc. soon as i get the chance cheers for any help.
