If you just got it from a dealer, or any commercial car sales place, then take it back and demand a compression test on the engine. If the results aren't good, then demand a refund. They should never have sold you the car in the first place.

On a private sale things are trickier, though I think the law's a bit fairer these days, and you do have some comeback on a private sale if you've bought faulty goods. You'd still need the compression test, but if the results aren't good, check your legal options and see if you have any comeback on the seller.

I should have mentioned before (on the other thread) that the IDE does tend to be a bit noiser at idle than most engines. This just seems to be a trait of direct injection engines.
