I don't have the B&O sound option, however, I do hear buzzing during bluetooth phone calls and some AM radio broadcasts. It sounds like a blown speaker/tweeter, however, that's another issue.

The issue I'm having is rattling in the driver's side door area while driving -- esp over bumps. I have a copy of the Bentley manual on CD which includes all current Audi TSBs, and there are several TSBs for 'noise' and 'rattling' issues. One known issue is the cover for the fuse panel. The wrench for the sunroof can vibrate and the cover itself can also vibrate causing unwanted noise. The solution is to use felt tape under the wrench and near the mounting spots on the cover. I'm going to try this tonight to see if it helps.

The Bentley manual is great, by the way. I had it for my last Audi and it proved very useful for diagnosing problems, etc.

do you get continuous TSB updates with the bentley manual or only TSBs that are current at the time you purchase the dvd?

I have a high pitched buzzing in my '09 right next to my head. It sounds more electronic than mechanical, maybe the window solenoid? It continues to make noise when the stereo is OFF. Is your smore of a rattle or a buzz?

Rattle at times, buzz from the speakers when listening to AM or on bluetooth. I did fix some of the rattle by following TSB 70-08-28 and putting felt tape on the fuse panel cover mounting brackets and on the sunroof wrench.

I have an '09, and I'm getting a buzzing sound from the drivers side door, front passenger side door, and a rattle from the rear of the car that sounds like a bunch of loose golf clubs.

I'm at about 3100 miles and my first service is at 5000. Hope the dealer can address the issue.

Did you ever find a fix for the door rattle? Thanks!

Recently I started hearing a rattle coming from the driver door and figured out that it's coming from the door trim, so I'm going to pop the trim and add some felt behind the area where it's rattling. Hopefully that solves the problem because it's really annoying.

Did the door buzzing go away after popping the trim?

Sorry, I've been busy and haven't had a chance to give it a try.

And it begins...

I have similar rattles. I'm not sure how to open the panel. Are there screws or just tabs? And if the Aluminum panel tabs easy to break?
