    2001 A3 TDI 110.
    Noticed this morning it started to make a weird noise i've not heard before.
    Best way to describe it is a electrical car sound or sounds like a supercharger(Not quite but you get what i mean) and vibrates, generally between 1.5k-2.5k rpm, does in both neutral and gear so know it isn't gearbox.
    From what i've gathered it may be the cat or engine cover?
    Any ideas?

    Has it got worse? Does the engine temperature make any difference to the noise?
