I've noticed this behaviour in my car several times and since I have figured out how it occurs I have managed to re-produce it every time.
So here's what it is. Basically when I start my engine from cold and drive off the car seems seems sluggish and isn't very responsive, however if after about 1 mile of driving I then park the car up leave the engine running idle, in neutral for around 5-7 minutes and then after this i drive off again the characteristics of the way the car performs totally transform. It's a lot smoother and is very responsive! This seems strange!
What I would like to know is if anybody else has or is experiencing this? what could be causing this and why doesn't the car perform as well from the word go?
My car is a 2.0T Avant Quattro 200bhp - BWE engine
Thanks in advance
