    newbe just brought 53 A3 2.0 tdi sport

    Hello everyone, just wont to say hi and share the news that i've just brought my first Audi.

    Being new to Audi i was wondering if i could throw a few questions at you lot, some may sound a little basic but you have to understand it's the first one i've owned and and all these warning and indicator lamps are making me think all is not so well ..... or i may just be reading and taking the owner's manual a little too seriously

    first question is about the Emission Control System lamp, when i start the car it come's on , stay's lit for about 2 or 3 sec's then turns off!!!!
    i've read in the that if it come's on to contact an Audi workshop to have the "possible" fault rectified so i was just wondering if everyone see's this light when starting their engines?.. i know it may be nothing but just thought i'd ask.

    i'll leave it there for now as everything else about the car is mint.... will post photo's and tell you more about my baby later ..lol..

    i may be wrong but if its the same as my VW then quite a few lights come on for a few seconds after ignition, shouldn't be anything to worry about.
