Dull high pitched noise coming from instrument cluster area

Hi all,

After a trip to the dark side (BMW), I'm back in an S3 again :D

On my new S3 however, not all the time, but quite a lot, i get a high pitched electrical like noise coming from the instrument cluster area (or so it seems), for a few seconds, then nothing for 30-45seconds, then again for a few seconds and so on.

Everything works fine (no errors in VCDS either), and its not causing any issues, its just fricking irritating. Its not that loud, so the radio can drown it out if turned up enough, just not so great when the radio is off and enjoying the natural sounds of the S3!
