      1.8t recommends 5w-40 synthetic

      Try putting in the correct grade of oil

      I have the same car. I always run m1 10w-30 full synthetic, as do many of my friends. never had a problem, and my engine is still clean inside @ 180,000 miles. it's not the oil.

      That is good for you, but if he changes the oil to the recommended grade, the noise should go away. I have seen this very same issue many times. The noise is the cam chain hitting the valve cover and the reason is that there is not enough oil pressure to keep the tensioner pumped up.

      Really, cause you've changed oil in how many other 1.8T's? And you've had customers come to you and ask you what that sound is after they changed there own oil.

      It does sound like the cam adjuster. Like others have said it is more than likely a oil pressure issue or a bad adjuster.
