Yes, I did get it, but not for the tyres although tyre numbers were recorded in the warranty manual and stamped by the dealer.

Its not the turbo, its from the engine, like the knocking in petrol cars, but I am not sure. I have heard it even before the turbo comes on, just drive with your windows open and you will know.

Apart from what kapil mentioned, its being discussed here

Dadu you are right. The sound is audible even in idling. I have opened the engine hood and I am convinced that it comes from the VTT.
This VTT is something like a turbine. It force feeds the (preheated) air to the intake. It has blades -like a turbine / Fan which may be rubbing on the casing. Both these should be in Aluminium / metal.

The noise has reduced since day 1 but is still there. I am taking it to the dealer to show him the same (and may help in change during Warranty !!).
It is hardly 1.5 days and ~ 150 kms on the clock. So I am keeping my fingers crossed that the noise should reduce by the time of 1st service.

Anyway thanks for the input.
