My brakes sometimes squeak at low speeds. Not always though.

My drivers door has a bit of an annoying noise (assuming seal) by my right ear when it’s sunny. So not too often!

That’s one upside of the simple interior design, there’s less to rattle.

The infotainment fan theory is a good shout, though it definitely sounds more like coil whine than the whir of even a small fan.  I am interested to hear if anyone else hears it.

Can't hear sh1t.... I've either got rather loud music on  :evil: or I'm listening to the creaking groaning sound from the B pillar.

The former drowns out the latter  :laugh:

I only hear it after switching the car off - usually when I arrive home late at night, so there's no other sound.

I think I have something similar in my 7.5.  Last week when it was very hot and my car had been sitting out all day in the sun I noticed a faint whirring noise behind the dash, after the AC had been on full for some time it slowed down but then picked up after I had parked up and switched off.  I was worried that something wasn't right as it also sounded like something was hitting the fan (card in spinning bike spokes).

Since the weather has cooled off a bit the noise has gone, it makes sense that there would be a fan just for the Infotainment system.

Not quite golf mk8 but my alpine double din has a cooling fan and yes you can hear it when the car is not running. They can generate a lot of heat.
