Hi Everybody. I never noticed it before, (because I'm always inside the car when I start it) but the other day when my Phaeton was running and I got out to move a garbage can, I noticed the sound of my engine (the V8). It is quite loud and somewhat whiny in nature. Is this the normal sound of this engine or should I have it checked. I've only had the car for about 3 months. It has a VW certified service on it and the dealer (a good one) never mentioned it. My son says its always been there.
