Question about 2007 Audi A3
I had same issue on my 99 a6 and it ended up being two different things. I had a bad wheel bearing and also my rear brakes where going bad and grinding so I changed al that and I also had bad boot on my front axle and just ended up changing the whole axle just to be safe. I would check these things I listed. If the axle is bad it will click when turning but I have seen them go bad and not click and give a rumbling sound like when wheel bearings go bad and it will do this in a straight line or turning. Hope this helps ya

This may sound obvious, but I would have your brakes checked out, just to rule them out. Many shops will do a free brake inspection.
If the noise is coming from the engine, look for a "Check Engine" light. If you see that, then have someone hook up a scanner to check the codes thrown by the car's computer and go from there.
A grinding noise is not something you want to put off or wait to fix.

if its only when you put your foot on the clutch it could be a release bearing fault,does it do it when you are not moving and put your foot on the clutch(engine running of course)

all wheel drive i presume... i would suggest it's a universal
joint ... or cv joint if you will
This picture is actually of a machine but cars are basically the same design
