Moans, whines and groans when cold

My Ti has started to make some unnerving noises just after starting in the morning. Seems to have been since the early mornings have become a bit chilly.

The power steering makes a grinding moaning noise, and there's a loud whine that accompanies the engine note.

Both disappear quickly once it has started to warm up.

Is it a case of "they all do it" or should I get it checked out?

Not yet 5000 miles on the clock.

Member car:


Had a similar noise on mine not so long ago, needed a new power steering reservoir and fluid change, all done under warranty. The dealer said it was a known problem on the car.
However mine is nearly 2 years old with 26K on the clock and i would have thought yours being newer would have had the newer reservoir fitted anyway, worth popping into the dealer to get it checked out though

My car is July 2008 model and although its never had a problem with the power steering its just been fitted with a new reservoir and fluid under warranty. The service report says the old one was leaking.
