Dude seriously, but some punctuation into your posts. It's taking me 5 x longer to decipher it!!!.

That probably is the problem yes. Can you take a photo of it?

I have a 1.2 active GP and it's definetly not loud. Engine sounds quite nice actually. With the exception of 1st gear, all the rest keep pulling well up to 4.5k revs when needed.

Re: my car

Yeah it is dirty, would you mind opening it up and have a look at the air filter or take a pic and we can look at the air filter?

Also how old is the car and how many miles has it done?

Re: my car

Oh right.

Its just that my car used to make a sound like this at 2600 rpm and it sounded awesome, but now its gone away after about 7000 miles.

Also people with MK2 punto's use to get it too, upto about 6-7000 miles. Strange.
