    Strange Noise

    Hi all.
    Bit of a strange one this I have a 2012 S3 DSG box, when cold and reversing the car out the garage I can hear a noise that I can best describe as sounding like popping bubble wrap ( but with a metallic sound) , it only makes this sound for a few seconds. It does not do it going forward nor in reverse when warm.
    There is nothing on the garage floor and it has made the noise when parked in other locations, does anyone have any ideas as to what it could be ?
    Thanks
