  1. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Sounds like a loud (almost power steering) whirring sound. It's only under throttle, when it's warmed up and in gear + under load. Similar to these threads, which basically say it's a turbo bearing: https://www.vwvortex.com/threads/whining-noise-when-accelerating-fast.2271189/...

    If you’ve been following Hoonigan’s Hoonicorn vs the World Series, based on the viewership figures many of you have, you’ll know that Ken Block’s 1,400 hp “Mustang” is an extremely fast car. But it’s finally met a worthy opponent in the form of the world’s fastest RS3. The Hoonicorn has so far...

    The ID.4 is on its way, and Volkswagen has said a lot about its new baby. But for the first time, VW handed over the EV to reviewers.  Now, because of embargoes, this video doesn’t actually get to show you what driving the ID.4 is like, but thanks to a technical interpretation of the rules, Out...

    There’s a popular refrain among the young that when they turn 80, they’ll live without fear and try all the things they were afraid might ruin their lives like hard drugs. Naturally, this is all a bit optimistic, but at least one UK-based nearly-octogenarian is living that dream. Arthur, a...

    The colossus at Rhodes is an Audi RS e-tron GT this week, as European media have had an opportunity to drive pre-production cars around the Greek island.  Naturally, this being an RS car, CarWow’s Mat Watson had to see what it was like in the quarter-mile. And what it’s like is fast. 10.9...

    We’re all excited to see the new Golf R, but what about hearing it? Fortunately, loose internets leak sec-urets and a new video posted to YouTube shows a Golf R revving in what appears to be an underground garage of some description. The Golf R’s engine note may not receive the wide love it...

    There are as many turns in that headline as there are on the Rallycross circuit these cars compete on. A Lamborghini is perhaps the last car I’d expect to see on the Rallycross circuit. And indeed, it is not as dominant as you’d expect a car with a V10 making about 500 hp. Though, this is...

    If an alien tried to learn about cars by exclusively looking at this website—something we’re calling our “master plan”—they might conclude that the Mk1 Golf is the most important and well-loved car in the history of time. And why shouldn’t they? But to say Mk1 makes it sound like the car never...

    The nice about sharing a platform across multiple vehicles is that the modifying that goes into the sportier cars needn’t be limited to the sportier cars. Enter the VR6 Sharan. This appears to be a first-generation Sharan, but that doesn’t actually help us very much in determining what year...

    “The funnest thing for this is being on the freeway,” says Scott Tupper, the owner of a Beetle convertible that 40% bigger than a standard Beetle. “People just chase you to try to get next to it.” And no wonder. Actually seeing this thing on the road with no context must be an oddly unsettling...

    The question is more interesting than you’d think. That’s largely down to these car’s similarity in the quarter-mile but also to the vast gulf in pricing. Making 750 hp and 508 lb-ft of torque, the Aventador has the measure of the tuned RS7 when it comes to power (700 hp) but not torque. Thanks...

    Australia’s The-Lowdown tuning house has taken on a new project and wouldn’t you know it, it’s an RS6. And to announce the project, they’ve produced a gorgeous film to showcase the car. The 1:45 video is an unrelenting tour of the car’s best angles and finest features. The video is only...

    Why would you race an RS4 Avant against an RS7? Well, first of all if you had them both and access to an airstrip, wouldn’t you? Secondly, you might discover something interesting, like the RS4 can beat the RS7 under the right circumstances. In three standing quarter-mile drag races, the RS4...

    There’s a phenomenon in the automotive world that I like to call the Bobby Fallacy. It’s the inclination to rate speed as the most important quality to measure a car by. The first data points we seek are horsepower, 0-60 times, top speeds, even the subtler stuff like skidpad tests are about...

    There are few things in this world as soothing as watching people who are very good at building something, build that something. The team at Lamborghini’s Sant'Agata factory is very good at making Huracans, as this one-hour documentary clearly shows. The documentary takes you through the...
