Is the 3.6 normally a noisy motor? Even around 2-3k rpms it seems overly loud to anything ive ever driven before. Not necessarily a bad noise, but just the mechanical noise of the motor. I know its a lot bigger than the 2.8 vr6 but my 04 gti is really quiet.

I have the same question. I just purchased a 2007 3.6L FWD and noted that it had an unusually loud (throaty exhaust) sound which my old 2003 2.8L AWD did not. I had my local VW dealer check it out and he said that it sounds normal for that year/engine. I thought about finding another 2007 with the 3.6L and test driving for comparison.
