    Hello,

    This is my first thread, so please go easy on me! :blush:

    I have bought a 2004 Sportback about a week ago. Was running fine until a few days ago. The Emissions Control Light came on and the car had lost a lot of power when you put your foot down. However when you're driving it and you turn the engine off and then start it again, usually this corrects it but the light still remains. I took it to a garage and the cleaned the MAF sensor and reset the light, but still same problem and light has come on again.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks, Chris

    Looks like your car goes into the limp mode.
    Try finding someone with a Vag-Com cable in your area and do a scan to check for error codes. It may suggest which component is faulty.
