    Hi all

    I’m Antony and have just bought an 04 A3 2.0tdi sport

    Loving the car so far.

    I am a bit of a car nut and love to tune and fiddle with them (cars).

    The one thing I have noticed on my A3 is the turbo whistle. Is this normal?
    It only happens under load, and I can not see excessive amounts of black smoke for the exhaust.

    Anyways, just wanted to say hi! Love the site and hope to be here for a good few years……

    Cheers

    A!

    The turbo's do whistle a little but some peoples idea of a worrying whistle and a normal whistle may differ - It's not something easily diagnosed without actually hearing it.
