Pulling out of a parking lot or turning in an intersection from a stop light it is easy to reproduce the grinding. To hear the "farting" noise it's just to open the window and drive around in a parking garage. It's absolutely not the sound from tires rubbing against the road surface, this is from another source and the grinding sensation is significant. The grinding is also there independent of road surface codition: wet or dry does not matter. Bring your car in and let a tech drive it, I will on Tuesday since there's definately something wrong. My car did not have this issue prior to the new ars pump was installed.

I look forward to hearing what you learn from your dealers visit Tuesday. I do not know what an ars pump is, but to my knowledge this has not been touched on my car, as I have not had it in the dealer since i took delivery last week. Thanks for sharing what you learn.
