When I start my car up it makes a ugly noise once the motor is running (a bit like if you kept the key on the starter position). Lasts about a second...

Anyone know what it is and is it a problem?

Probably the starter sticking slightly. If you undo the starter motor and slide it back you should be able to wipe off the shaft and apply a smear of light oil, although i have not actually done this on a GTV so not sure how easy (or not) it is to access.

Mine makes a noise on startup but it's just the aux belt squealing a tad, it was changed along with the tensioner last year so I'm not worried.

Good luck sorting yours out
