      What was it idling at? Did you just start it up?

      Sounds like your timing chain/valve lifters are making excessive noise. Some of that noise is normal but that sounds very very loud. Does it quiet down at all after the car warms up?

      Car was warmed up, I just parked and started it again for the video. It was idling around 1,000-1,100K

      Definitely seems like you have a problem. Take it into the dealership and let your warranty take care of it.

      Thanks I'll give them a call in the AM..... Hopefully I don't get the oh that's normal for a TSI engine blah blah blah. I know it didn't sound like that when I bought it and I'm sure the ones on the lot don't sound like this....

      I can't here the video. I'd like to hear it to know what to watch for.

      On our Manual Transmission Sport 1100 RPM is "Fast warm up Idle".

      It normally idles around 850 if I recall. DSG might be different.

      It could be your water pump which seems pretty common and easy to fix.

      X2 on the waterpump actually. Just came across this thread in the TSI forums, seems to be a fairly common failure.
