Yeah not all people are sensitive to such things. I needed to concentrate to hear if my car clicks the same. Also needed to turn off the radio while standing at the traffic lights (studded tires). My car bigger problem is low idle rpm at temps lower than zero (stalls or wheelspin at launch) and clutch not fully disengaging, so I have grrrrrrrrr sometimes when trying to engage reverse. That makes side parking on the hills (where I live) quite an experience. Where cupra has no issues. Still both are SEAT's - Super Exciting Automotive Trouble. I never expect them to be working perfectly. Being exciting is enough . Of course I am not "normal" person. I am more like ones who didn't care about how plastic Evo interior was looking. Looks good, goes fast, nothing else matters.
