Noise like a puff of air on cold start

Pretty sure my 1.8 Mk8 hasn’t got a nitrous kit installed 🤣 but I’m getting a sound like a quick puff of air when starting the car from cold.

Any ideas as to what this might be would be appreciated!

Picked up the car (a 2007 with 84k miles) last weekend. It’s my second Mk8 and I’m loving being back in this car!

I think it may be something to do with the starter motor.Can't elaborate on the how's and why's, except Ours is similar and thinking it may be the air conditioning, when I had the a/c guy fit a new condenser and re-gas, I mentioned it to him and he thought the starter motor.

Never resulted in any component failure or starting/reliability issues.
