    I have a 96 A8 4.2 quattro - Whining from front end when increasing in speed. The whining stops when I come off the power, I've checked the fluids and they are ok..

    Any ideas on what it is and how it could be fixed? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    If you are using Mac OSX, I can tell you how to convert DVD into QuickTime.

    Yes I saw it too, on Saturday night. Certainly looks great on the move with a great road 'presence' ...
    Looking forward to some official announcement soon ???

    if it is coming from the front of the engine then check the belt/belts are correctly tensioned, the tensioner pulley may be faulty. if it is not the belts or tension on the belts, it may be caused by component failure, i.e. aircon bearings, power steering pump, etc. or simply something running out of true and causing the belt to squeel/whine.
    see if the belt has any damage.

    (as i always say, if she whines, tell her to shut up....)
