    Magnetic Ride Thump Noise

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Forgive my ignorance on this matter. I have a 2016 S3 with Magnetic Ride Suspension and I find that when I go over certain bumps in the road, specifically road markings that are protruding high enough, the rear suspension make a loud thump, feels like the suspension is banging into the cap at the top. I've asked the dealer in Dubai about it but they said this is normal.... it certainly doesn't feel or sound normal.

    Any ideas?

    Check the spare tire to see if its secured in the trunk.

    Yup, that's how my mag ride feels/sounds too. Same year, car too. Mine is selective, on certain days the magnetic ride behaves great, its almost adaptive (even though I know its BS) I go over the same speed bumps going into work everyday. On a Monday it will be smooth, on a Tuesday it will be harsh and loud.. same drive select setting.. I just think the system is a joke in general, its very glitchy in my opinion.

    with mine I think it is always loud. No matter which stiffness I select. very weird and a little disappointing!

    I've experienced the same issues with the MR being rough too.

    Same here on my 2018. Sounds equally to blown shock absorbers.

    It really is an unsettling noise... still don't think it's normal but Audi insist it is, hehe
