    Well actually just knock.

    Any A3 quattro owners...

    Do you sometimes get an audible 'knock' when the car moves off in reverse? For example, you're stationary facing down hill, you put the car in reverse and in that second or two when you go from the foot brake to the accelerator and start to move backwards there is a knock from the gearbox/transmission almost like it's taking up slack.

    My S3 does this aswell, but mine sounds like it may be suspension/subframe related.

    Not noticed it on mine, how much of a slope does it have to be on for the noise to occur?

    Not much of a slope, just enough for the car to move forward a touch and then back.
