    sounds like a main power supply fault. Check the fault codes.

    Might be worth checking the leads are securely on the battery as it might be something as simple as loose terminal. It's free to do and only takes a minute.

    I had a similar problem although it was when the Rev's dropped, when it was idleing or crawling in traffic. Turned out to be a dirty throttle body, had it all cleaned out, not had a problem since.

    it wont be a throttle body fault as that wouldnt cause the power failure that was mentioned. Where abouts are you?. There will be someone nearby that will have vagcom. If theres a fault code i could point you in the right direction. Other than that it would be guessing.
