i've had my R about a month now and it seems to making some strange exhaust sounds. There are 2 main noises which i think rnt right.

Firstly, more especially when it is cold, it makes a sort of spluttering noise when u put ur foot down. Secondly there is a metalic rattle when i lift off.

i dont really know what could be wrong? its under vw warranty so i can take it back...but i just wondered if ne1 knew what it could be?

Cheers, Chris!

Chris,

Is the spluttering or rattle only happening when cold ?

My car when cold for a few minutes pops and burbles loudly on lift off, but after a few mins when it warms up its back to the normal pops and burbles which are a bit quieter.

no the spluttering is constant (u can hear it very clearly when driving next to a wall etc) and the rattle is worse when it is cold, but is still there when it is warm. but its definatley not pops or burbles.

and yeh cheers, i rekon i will do a video and c wat u think.

Has it been regularly serviced? If it is coughing and spluttering it sounds like misfiring which could be the result of duff spark plugs or coil packs.
