Only asking as i need some advice on how it should sound, I've never had a diesel before so dont really know too much about them but mine just seems too loud :confused: and it dosnt make a difference if i pump my brake pedal - its still noisy as hell or is that how these engines meant to sound?

If anyone is passing Peacehaven area maybe stop by for a cuppa and just have a quick look / listen

Hope someone can help

Thanks in advance

Cheers dude, just took it to a vw specialist as im concerned about this tapping / rattle

gonna give it an oil change , clean the injectors and he thinks timing could be out but he admitted that it was a bit noiser than your usual 2.4

I need to listen to another 2.4 and compare !

I have a 2.4 and I`m in Brighton! I get para about how loud it is. Worse from cold but then quietens down a bit when warm. Still, runs lovely mind you!
