    Is this not just normal turbo whistle?

    How long have you had the car?

    So you just get this noise while idling?
    Does it happen when stationary or when moving?

    Meatychi, the turbo won't whistle at idle on any car.

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    maybe its your air con then! Is it coming from behind your centre console and under the dash?

    Mine makes a funny whirring sound.
