Cam chain noise? (Video)


New Member
I'm quite worried about my S3. I don't know how it's supposed to sound and i've read that it's a noisy engine but also comes with cam chain-problems, sometimes.

When hood closed i can barely hear any noise but with it open it sounds like in the video, is it supposed to sound like that or what do you S3-experts say? No noise when inside either.
I also noticed the "ticking" sound is much more noticable in the video than in real life.
There no fault codes regarding the camshafts and it's been serviced very well.

Does your S3 2009-engine sound the same?
