I have a 500T. When i'm getting on it a little, I feel an uncomfortable vibration through the peddle in every gear between 3000 and 4000 or so RPM's. Most notably in 2nd and 3rd, because i'm in that range for longer. I feel it in the steering wheel some too. It's out of place and inconsistent. Has anyone else experienced this? Also, there is a stop sign near my house where I have to wait my turn heading up hill. When I rev to move forward, then let up on the gas and push in the clutch in, I hear a fluttering winding down. This may be the natural sound of the turbo, but it doesn't sound good. but I don't know because I don't have a chance to hear it winding down like that very often. Thanks.

I can't speak of the vibration but the winding down or fluttering is likely just turbo chatter, something you can hear in my video for reference to compare...

If you go to Cars & Coffee in Cary perhaps we can meet sometime and you can hear and see it. :)

Sounds good, it looks like there is one on the 2nd. I'll PM you before and get some details if you don't mind.

Sounds great, there are a few people I catch up with from the other forum in Cary for C&C, I intend to go to Feb but sadly after that I may not be making it due to some changes that will keep me busy every Sat, not happy about it but it is a need. :) PM me with any questions or concerns.
