First, aside :
Well, some of you may remember I was going to get an S3 through Colin. For various reasons I ended up going to Motorpoint, but Colin was cool with my reasons.
Anyway, I love the car, but yesterday was the third time it's had a bizarre, loud, and rather worrying noise on startup.
There's normally a little "growl" off it starting, which I understand is normal. Three times it's made the same chainy, clattery noise that lasts for a couple of seconds then vanishes. It's *really* loud and, of course, no one has been around each time to hear it!
