    So far I have:

    B&O crackling - I don't seem to be any closer to getting it fixed

    A loud clicking from the suspension/steering that's been getting progressively worse - dealership couldn't hear it last time, but it's definitely worse now

    Wastegate rattle - no fix at the moment. It's annoying though

    And, as of tonight, hill hold assist is not disengaging properly without absolutely flooring it (or stalling), so I've had to disable it otherwise I wouldn't have a clutch for much longer

    Good times.
    2nd Audi (3rd VAG) and always sh!t loads of problems........ :keule:

    The car's been in for 11 days now, so far the wastegate rattle still has no fix from Audi and the hill hold assist issues couldn't be replicated, the suspension "click" has been with Audi Germany who recommended a grease of some kind, but it had to be shipped from Germany. It's been tested today and it's still the same, so they suspect wheel bearing or drive shaft, as they're confident it's not the steering rack or suspension. I don't think there's any updates from Germany on the B&O crackling either. The dealership has been fantastic, however.

    I've just had this problem - Luckily my friend is a master tech so managed to have a good chat and test with him - Fault finding couldn't find anything wrong but he changed the clutch sensor switch which has resolved the issue

    Assuming you have had yours sorted by now though
