    Noticed last night that when its really cold (0 to -4) my 2.0T sounds like this:

    YouTube - Seat Leon Cupra - Squeaky Idle

    ....when I first start it up. Is this a problem or normal when its this cold?

    you filled the washer jets up recently and splashed over into the engine? sounds exactly like my GTI after i did it. get some silicone spray and coat your belt. Its really hard to get to it and you will have to keep repeating the job for a few weeks then it goes.

    hope thats helps
