I purchased the new A3 S-Line back in Oct 12 and after about 500 miles it started to make a noise on startup (only after it had been left standing overnight or for at least 6 hours. It has been back to the Audi garage twice now and they still have not resolved it, however they came back to me last week to say they have identified the noise and state it is the turbo charger linkage, currently they are working on a 'fix' for this and apparently my car is not the only one with this issue.
So my question is, does anyone else have this fault on their new A3 and have you had any resolve ?
Also does this noise sound like an issue with the linkage or are they just giving me the run-around ?
I have uploaded the noise to sound cloud (link below) for people to have a listen, any comments or advice would be appreciated.
