  • My first test drive and a question

    Hi,

    I had my first test drive of an 08 VXR astra in Arden Blue 2 days ago.

    I noticed if I accelerated hard but almot instantly backed off the accelerator I could hear what sounded like wastegate chatter.

    Is this normal on a standard car or could this car of been modified?

    The test drive was at a main dealer not private.

    Thanks

    Darren

    Welcome mate, no its not 'normal' do a search for turkey noise, then all will become clear.... its basically some disconencted vacuum pipes in a lot of the cases, otherwise could be recirc valve, the threads you come across in your search will highlight the common culprits
    Cheers,

        There is a recirc valve noise btw, which is normal.

          As said, it's not normal... BUT you don't have to worry. It's just a small pipe come off, and it's a common problem.

          Mine doesn't have the issue though, if you are worried! Could buy mine!
