I have C6 and has anyone noticed that the car makes a mechanical noise every so often you open the drivers door to get in? I notice it in the morning when the car is garaged that it will make almost like the parking brake sound when i open the door. I know its not the P brake because I never set it. It is also not the chairs and mirrors, because I am the only one that drives this car and I always use the same set of keys. I don't have a problem with it; just wondering what is it doing?

Thanks

If its the same noise that the b8 a4 makes, its the fuel pump getting primed.

Yep. It's the fuel pump priming for start up.
