    My car used to cut off smoothly when i parked it up but latley its doing this...any ideas?

    seem that everyones a3/s3 is doing it. when you press down clutch and turn it off it goes off smoothly. and if you don't it sound like it's falling apart.

    I always thought it was just the gears in the gearbox rattling as they come to a stop, this would explain why the noise goes away when you dip the clutch. Just an idea mind you.

    The sooner you change it the better, so that your clutch doesnt hold any extra pressure/damage... and also you car should go a little better than.. :)

    My car is booked in on the 25th January for the clutch to get replaced with my sachs perfromance one. I will find out what state my DMF is in then as it will be exposed, I would be surprised if my DMF was faulty as i have had this noise since i bought the car with less than 5000 miles. Maybe some flywheels are noiser than others but i wouldnt say that this noise means your flywheel needs replaced. If your flywheel was on the way out you would get vibration through the clutch pedal.

    The flywheels must wear out within the delivery mileage, that would explain it :laugh:
