    Might be the steering rack?

    My S3 had a knocking coming from it on tight left hand turns. It was still covered by the warranty so Audi replaced it and so far -touch wood- I haven't had any problems.

    They kerbed my alloys badly and waiting for them to fix them but thats the only thing!

    Could be a number of different things, depends when and at what speed you get the problem:
    Loose wheel
    Loose brake caliper
    Worn suspension bushes
    etc etc

    does this happen at all speeds ???? and just driving or while acc / braking ??? Try 34 in the fronts 36 is a little high and may be giving you the light feel . 32 feels better in mine but have 34 as the tyres wear better
