    Hi everyone wondering if anyone can help just brought my fr tdi and it's making a elephant noise at 2000 & 2500 rpm under light compression it's driving me mad. It's had a brand new turbo with no play open to suggestions...

    I had a similar noise (good description by the way!) That was the fuel filter. This was a petrol bmw so no idea if it's even relevant but worth a punt.

    Could it be a boost leak, especially with you having had the turbo replaced?

    Agreed, sounds like you've got a boost leak.
