I just picked up my 06 A3 last week and i'm enjoying it so far (apart from a crack on the windscreen that happened on the second day).
I was listening to the engine with the bonnet up, and I thought it sounded kinda tappety/clattery.
It drives fine and pulls well, it also starts right off the button.
Are these engines noisy, it's not really loud but seems annoying. Obviously it's near silent in the car.
Can anyone share their thoughts?
