    just a quick question to others with a 2.0t is it normal for a whining noise from the engine it sounds like when my gearbox went on my old astra its quiet in all the gears apart from 3rd where it is loudish its done it since new its got 3k on it now and it was ran in proply so iv put it down to it supposed to do it, but i am a bit cautious of it?

    thanks

    Yeah I get a "whining" noise on mine as well. But only when taking my foot off the gas and slowing down (low revs), as mentioned above.
    I don't get the whining anywhere else.

    Speaking of noise. Can you guys hear your engine ticking over from inside of the car when idling???
    I used to have a non turbo FSI and I'm sure I couldn't hear a thing when idling. But in this TFSI I can.
