      Sounds a little high, have you looked up the value online? I paid 14k for a 2007 A4 w/o S-Line, it had 50k on it. This was in VA though, I'm sure the market is different everywhere. I looked at a...

      Oil around the cap may be the PCV, its one of the symptoms, I just had mine replaced due to a *small* seep around the cap and I haven't seen it come back.

      Chopper,

      Thanks, that's a great link -- I correlated that sound as 'normal' pretty quick, I hadn't seen that video though.

      Engine Makes Lots Of Noise At Idle

      All,

      I'm sure others have seen this before but I'm a new member so I'm asking for myself. I'm a recent switch over to Audi from VW, had a 03 Jetta before. My 2007 A4 w/ 2.0T & 6spd makes a lot...

      Forgive me if this has already been hashed out, but I didn't see it asked on the sticky. My breaks make the 'wear line' high pitched sound off and on. They don't always do it. My Audi dealer said...
