    Noisy diff/prop at 2200RPM, one I owned for 5 hours suffered from this.

    Then the usual things you'd normally check on a 140 TDI, such as, service record, PD oil been used? Unusual turbo whine, flywheel chatter, juddering on idle.

    That post makes no sense!!! The S4 does have "proper" Quattro, the A3/S3 uses Haldex. OP is on about the A3 Sportbacks.....
