    Hey guys, just got the car, however i'am worried i have that timeing chain issue from what another user was speaking about on here. Obviously i dont know all the noises and sounds the car makes as its new to me. I have seen a video on you tube of an engine running and mine sounds the same so i think all is fine. Just anouther user reported you only really hear it on start up. Any help would be massibly appircated. I might just book it into audi as im under warrenty, get the slight bubbling on the roof rails done too :)

    i thought on start up the cam chain did rattle a bit because it takes a while for the oil pressure to build up and operate the chain tensioner or something...

    I read in the S3 hand book that the tappets can be noisy until the oil pressure builds, or something like that.
