    If i remember correctly this was after heavy rain?
    Water in your ECU?
    Take it off (10 min job) and see if its wet.
    EPC or ESP light?
    Look at your connection to the throttle body connector, make sure its very tight, ( a couple of plastic ties to keep it on) works loose on vibration and causes car to stall.
    Fuel pump?

    Have you cleaned your throttle body? if you have, have you done the throttle body adaptation?
    There are two connectors to the throttle body, one on the inlet manifold and the other on the side of the throttle body and this one causes all the problems.
    Are you scanning with vag com? or some other scanning tool?
