    I'm getting a whining in relation to RPM coming from the drivers side of the car and engine area.
    Just wondered if it was a characteristic of the car at all or if anyone had/has similar?
    Happens in all gears etc

    it's a 57 plate S3, manual on 34,000 miles.

    Thanks.

    My car has a constant whine too, but it comes from passenger seat area though.
    I must start making my missus sit in the back.




    Sorry, no doubt someone will be along with a sensible answer soon.

    Has the cambelt been changed yet? Not normal behavior, could be an idler/tensioner or waterpump/alternator/ac compressor.

    It's not feedback through the speakers possibly if related to RPM? Have you tried with the stereo off?
