    Lag

    Anyone got any ideas, I'm getting a lag (not always but sometimes around 3500 I press down and nothing happens. Cars been playing up quite a bit. Xenons were pointing skyward the other day. Stereo kept cutting out. Taking it to the dealer today.

    Oh dear, this problem can be a swine to diagnose. It can be a number of things and a few inter-related problems rearing their ugly heads.

    A VAG-COM and boost gauge are required chaps.

    Yes it is mate, not a stupid question at all. It's diagnostic software that runs on a PC, and can interrogate all of the car's systems. It will show a fault code if there is a problem with any of the systems.
