    Don't mean to put the fear in you, but take a look at http://www.carbibles.com/engineoil_bible.html and go down to the Audi paragraph.

    "The most important thing for the VW or Audi owner is this: if the oil light comes on and beeps the high pitch beep that most everyone ignores, pull over and shut the engine down immediately."

    I think the tapping is normal its not necessarly the engine as the ignitor or somthing that sits on the air box make quite a loud tapping/ticking noise.
