    New S3 owner saying hello!! Coming from a corsa D it's a slight step up ;)
    Anyway, to the point. Coming off a roundabout or round a tight bend when giving it the beans there seams to be some sort of weird mechanical, high pitched fast ticking/grinding its weird to describe. Only noticed it when turning left only from the right front wheel but that may be because I had the drivers window down only. Haven't noticed the other side do it.

    car is 2011,FASH, 25k on the clock.

    is this normal?

    Thanks

    Could be anything. Take it to a dealer and get them to investigate under warranty.

    Cheers not familiar with the set up on the S3 thought it could be normal.
