    My guess is it’s just a software bug in the ECU code on the 8V platform. I’ve not seen this behaviour in any other S or RS, though I haven’t driven a new RS4/5 to confirm. I imagine the cost of...

    *should*, yes. Our RS6 worked that way, as did the SQ5 (though no crackles obviously) in the sense that leaving the car in dynamic from engine start behaved the exact same way and sounded exactly the...
