    When I'm under engine braking with my foot off the loud pedal, I have a droning noise coming from somewhere, first thought was tyres as my front 2 were due a change, that's been done and I've still got it.

    Looking around/under the car my left rear arch seems an inch or so 'lower' than my right rear arch, I'm assuming it's probably suspension related, anyone come across it or any ideas?

    Try taking the car out of gear and coast for a few secs see if the droning stops. My last S3 had the same problem and it was down to failure of the mushroom section of the propshaft......was changed under warranty.

    The tyres do wear funny on the back leading the front edge of the grip for some reason , but I have the same in sure its a dougnut which is about £120 for the part

    Rather embarrassingly was tyre pressure, back left was mega low!
