When the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve opens it can make a rough sound tike the exhaust is blowing from one cylinder (because, in a way, it is) - its a kind of "off beat" sound- this can happen if the EGR is playing up or if it is working "normally" (if you can call injecting the engines waste product/s back into the inlet "normal")

Other things to wach out for is the DMF (Dual Mass Flywheel) wich can wear out, this can cause vibration and/ or metal swarf to affect the crank position sensor
