    Noisey tappets when starting!!!!

    I have a question for all you S3 owners out there. Despite that fact that it’s mentioned in the S3 Owners manual and they do say that this is normal and yes it does disappear after about half a second, but does anyone else’s engine sound really “tappetty” on initially start up, before the oil pressure gets up, or is there something wrong.

    Can anyone advise or put my mind at rest please!!!

    Yes perfectly normal. My A4 does it too. It is more noticeable if the car hasn't been used for a while though.
