I'm now at 600 miles, love the car EXCEPT the engine noise is driving me nuts above 3000 - it sounds like metal grinding on metal and sets my teath on edge! I don't know what to do, it almost makes me reluctant to drive it. I've thought about ear plugs, but not very practical. I want to improve the sound system anyway, but I'm not sure that will hide it.

Are you used to the sound of the boxer engine? I wasn't sure about it at first. Either I have got used to it or 3000km later the engine has bedded in nicely. Take the demo car out for a run (as long as it's mileage is not too much higher than yours) and see how it sounds, and definitely ask your dealer for advice.
Same thing I was wondering if you were famiilar with the boxer buzz, lol..maybe posting a sound clip of the noise might help?
I need to come up with a solution IF it is the "boxer buz." (Ear plugs would be cheap, but not very practical!)
