The noise is hard to describe, but like a low rubbing sound, on both left and right hard turns. You can really hear it in a parking garage with the window down.
Hey, I have the same noise sometimes, and at first I noticed it after pulling hard, downshifting before a turn. I figured it was the diff still being locked. Then I realized it's not only after pulling hard, so that wouldn't make sense. I took it in and I wasn't able to recreate that when the tech was in the car. I thought it was when the wheel was locked left, but it's when the steering wheel is 80 or 90 degrees left.
I did have the diff oil changed. I have 6500km on the car, first heard it around 2500km.
