    Well , light has come on a couple more times , went back to my local garage first , they couldn't find anything wrong and suggested taking it to main dealer , Audi said it "could" be the cam chain sensor , they reset it , checked it and said it was ok and keep my eye on it . 3mls later , it's back on !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Huddersfield Audi quoted me £2200 for the chain doing, that included engine out etc. but not all of the other bits and bobs i.e. vvt's bottom chain etc.
    It was eventually done by Harrogate Audi for £3300 but that included absolutely everything except the sensors which were already new.
    Dealers are quick to say "chains" though when they don't know the actual cause so tread carefully.
