    There's 2 switches on the brake pedal, both trip/cancel the cruise control. One is a combined vac release/electrical switch, the other is just for the brake light

    So could the hiss be the vacuum being released?

    Could it not just be a faulty gasket and the head is fine? I know it's a different engine but my old 300tdi was just the gasket.

    A switch on the brake pedal

    Kind of an obvious safety feature, even my 32yr old daimler has it.

    I could borrow my dads s3 lightweight, but it's not exactly comfy for a 50 mile each way trip
