Re: Does your QL make noise when going up or down?

mine sounds like that too.. just not as loud. If you want, I can record what mine sounds like with my iPhone, just to compare.

I processed the video and increased the audio, so as to hear the sound. So in it is not that loud. But inside the vehicle you can definitely hear it. It was not as loud before, it it as only doing it at Level 2, at the end of the run. Now I can hear also the air flowing and I guess the valve is lauder.

It would be nice if you can record it and compare.

Re: Does your QL make noise when going up or down?

My engine was quieter the first 100 miles. Then I noticed the V8 really started to sound like one. I think everything has a break in and will get louder over time. From the video it doesn't sound like it is any louder than it should be.

I know, I was just making a point that even my engine/exhaust was a lot more quiet when I picked it up than it is now. Just trying to make a point that everything gets louder with age even if it is just a few hundred miles

Also the front air dam is damaged( out of place) and the brake pedal goes all the way down (spongy). I am afraid of being paranoid, but I do not think it was like that. I checked the brake fluid level and it is at max.

I really do not have item to take this car back and forth to the dealer. I got a new car cause I didn't want to deal with issues.
Alignment work already?

Re: Does your QL make noise when going up or down?

Here is the sound clip I took with my iPhone sitting on top of the center armrest. Figure I'd give you the raw footage so you can enhance the sound like you did with your video just to keep things consistent.

I processed your feed using the same settings, but the sound coming from yours is less noticeable. I was pointing the camera at the lower right back sit from the arm rest. It may be that you are pointing the camera differently.

Nevertheless, I think mine is louder.

I do not want to even bring it back to the dealer because I am afraid they are going to screw up something else.
