    What engine is it? Possibly an air leak although the Vec's do make a nice turbo noise when coming onto boost

    Looking at your profile it's a CDTI - and I assume 150? The turbo noise is normal from 1,500rpm on wards to about 2,500rpm. Is there lots of black smoke?

    Sure it's not one of your passengers when you put your foot down

    Brave man (or should that be foolish?) for not test driving a car prior to parting with your wonga.

    Before you panic just check basics is there a clean air filter, check intercooler pipe not split,check other air hoses around the turbo.

    And then give yourself a right good head slap for not driving it.

    probably just air getting sucked in the intake as your accelerate, I'd say its normal. Mine wooshes and whistles and you put your foot down and so did the 3 new Astra H CDTi's I had as company cars a few years back. I actually really like the sound.
