    Anyway to mask the injector ticking noise?

    This came up in a discussion with a mate who had the GTI ED30 that annoying ticking noise from the injectors on the tfsi engines, seems like a major oversite on the designers part considering most other small details they go through. I know they have the sound deadening under the bonnet but you can still hear it quite clearly when stood outside the car, just wondered if there had ever been a fix?

    I know what you mean as they are noisy but with the bonnet shut I wouldn't say they were that bad.... Quieter than a diesel on tick over put it that way

    Nige that's ok when your in the car but **** when your out of it haha, its coming out soon so wanna get rid before I can hear it again haha. Seems like a big oversite really they are my 2 hates of the car that ticking and the huge gap in front of the battery box. It bugged me so much the other day I started looking at R32s again haha
