So, I get in my car this week to drive to the airport, and being very anti-everything at 4 in the morning, I had no music on, just the sweet tune (!?) of the TDi (engine, not TDiLine, lol) and heard this horrible /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gifed bearing noise when pulling away...... It's there all the time, every time you move in 1st..... So, after calling around the local dealers who were all about as helpful as a chocolate fireguard, I dropped in to Aylesbury Audi as it is on the way to the GF's place.... They were excellent /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif, took my baby out and came back to say: We think one of the clutches has burnt out. There might be a new upgraded part as this is the case for A4's. You can carry on driving it, we'l book it in for next month for 2 days. So upshot is, they have to take an oil sample, test it, check for swarf, then replace any required components.... All this at 12,000 miles!!! Anyone heard of similar problems?
