    afternoon guys.

    over the past few months every so often when i pull away it sounds like a grinding noise. iv took the rear wheels off and had a look and it seems okay.

    has anyone had the same problems?

    i think it may be brake pads. there getting low so I'm just wondering.

    thanks peeps

    I had the same kind of problem on 1 of my previous A3's. Very intermittent, I left it for a couple of months and the problem went away. But I reckon it was something to do with the exhaust. Check the clamps, etc...
