    Hi Guys

    I've got a whining noise. It happens at low rpm more noticeable when pulling off and 2nd gear. If I rev it in neutral you can also hear it.

    Any idea's?

    Sounds like the famous turbo whine on that engine (BKD) ! Some people describe it a sounding like a police siren.

    Maybe a pipe loose or leaking (hopefully) rather than the turbo.

    Mine does the same but you get used to it .

    Cheers

    Yep that's the noise.

    Is it something to worry about?

    Don't think so really. From the threads on here loads have the same problem.

    I've done 71k and it hasn't changed in past 12 months. Take it to a VAG dealer if you're worried and get them to check it. Loose pipe or connection most likely.

    Only if it's the turbo do you have a problem but the car will have shown signs of going wrong - probably 'limp' mode or similar.

    Not unless you notice any power issues.
