    Just had car towed back to the house.. Upon ignition going on im getting oil pressure warnings? Checked the oil and now topped it up. Does the engine have a safety mec that will stop it starting if the oil level is too low?

    As tdi-man says - DO NOT TRY TO START THE CAR

    Needs diagnostic scan to identify the problem.

    Sounds like your turbo has gone pop and the engine oil has wasted away through the exhaust. Did you not see plumes of white smoke? Do not start the engine, with the low oil, it will soon damage the engine!

    Recon turbo incl.new oil pipe and all the bits incl. labour cost me £695. at an independent VAG specialist.

    Fortunately I had aftermarket warranty with Warranty Direct and they paid £500 of it !

    Take it to the garage first to see what damage the turbo has. Any broken bits may end up in the intercooler.
