    Hi guys,

    Recently have heard a high pitched whine while pulling away in low speeds, happens just when I get to the biting point - once I get past that and accelerate away it goes away. Whining seems to come from front left of the car. At first I thought it was wheel bearing, but seems too loud for that, and seems to happen when pulling away. Also it seems to be worse when turning corners...I'm thinking front Diff issues? :S

    Car is due a service, so going to make sure they replace gearbox, diff, haldex fluids - check steering pump fluid etc. What do you guys think though?

    Cheers,
    Aran

    bit of an update. Seems to NOT happen when the car is cold, once the car warms up then it starts
