    normal mate, these pd tdi's have a loud turbo air induction sound and spool whistle. enjoy it. if it starts to sound like a siren then your turbo is on its last legs.

    Where do you hear the noise? On mine I can usually hear suction of air sound eminating from the passenger side (oddly enough). I can only really hear the whistle when the windows are down.

    it sounds like a sqealing fan belt but not as bad! thats the best way i can describe it! power is on the button but this noise is not air suction!
