Any of you RS guys get a crunch sound from the rear suspension when it's fully compressed and sport mode is off? I seem to hear a crunch from the rear driver's side wheel, but I haven't had a chance or haven't heard one from the right side yet.
It sounds like a rubber crunch sort of sound, just wondered if that's normal when hitting the bump stops or if it's something I need to get checked. I've never had a TT before with the adjustable suspension so I don't know what's normal and what's not.
EDIT: See below. The noise I was describing is the stock wheel / tire rubbing the carpet/sound insulation in the rear wheel well on the driver's sode. Michalborz has it on both sides.
Other RS guys can you check for rubbing? It seems audi needs to have redesigned isulation so this doesn't happen with the stock 19s.

I don't get a "crunching" sound. I get something that sounds more like a little knock. Or something is loose and is rolling inside a box of some sort. It only happens on quick right turns, though. I'm going to ask the service department to take a look at my suspension, control arms, etc. during my 5k service. I did accidentally hit something really hard at about 50 mph in Belgium with my left front wheel. They've got some pretty terrible roads there...
Wait, though... How is your suspension fully compressed? Are you loading the car up with "little people" or something?

To me it doesn't sound like something is lose. More like a rubber scruntch. Anyway.. I think I will have them check it out when I get an oil change. It doesn't seem to affect the car, just more of an annoyance than anything.
Also doesn't happen in sport so perhaps I should always be in sport mode.

Just wanted to add my 5 cents, I just came back from Tail Of the Dragon and I heard the robbing you described on most of the hard turns when suspension was fully compressed.
Looks like the outside edge tire rubs against fender liner. My car is stock, unmodified with stock wheels and tire (Toyo).
I went to the dealer right after my trip, showed them pictures from the trip, and fender liner with marks. The dealer wrote all the information and supposedly waiting for Audi of America to respond.
I believe you should go to the dealer and do the same thing, maybe then they'll do something about it.

I get a little ping or scrunch noise when the car shifts forward or back, like when you shift or take off. I have not noticed any tire rubbing but that would be a separate issue as this noise happens right away and I have not noticed it at full throttle as other things are going on.
It seems on the back fenders the lining in the wheel well is raised with a big lump right at the point where the tire hits when the suspension fully compresses.
Exactly what michalborz shows. It seems your has been rubbed more. I have no idea why they would design a huge hump there. Makes no sense.
