    Looks a little like that instrument you use to take off the alloy wheel face?

    Give us some clues, is it rubber and does it look like it was once a complete ring ? ~Is it painted the same colour as your car ?

    I would go with those rubber loops that you get on tarpaulins as tie downs on flat back trucks

    It looks like a bit of rubbish that got stuck to your car. If it still works, don't worry about it :thumbsup:

    (I have a friend who wouldn't sleep for days if he found something like that under his car)

    Well 2 things I think it could be, 1st looks like one of the under seat metal bits that holds the cushioning in, albeit a mangled one at that

    Or is it actually your caliper retaining clip on say the rears, as fronts is larger I think, I know the sport/sline use this style for the pads/calipers to stay in tight.

    I'm thinking its the caliper sprung loaded clip.

    ooo i like these guessing games.

    I am going with random **** collected from the works carpark when you drove over it. I cannot for the life of me think what this would be from your car, too long and thick (oo err mrs) for a pad anti rattle spring for sure

    According to Audi road assist it it not from my car , but junk from the road.

    Which would make sense as it only made a noise after i have traveled for a couple of mins.

    Good guessing game though,

    It's obviously a worm.

    Game over.
