    I know this is a fault on these cars where the temp guage works eratically or doesnt move at all well mine didn't move at all when i bought it,after having a good read on here i changed the temp sensor(black 2 pin changed to grey 2 pin) but made no difference,then today i changed the thermostat with new coolant,the guage went up just below 70c after 15 minutes then stopped and returned under 50c.Im not a mechanic but can get by but just wondering if ive missed something......

    Advice appreciated.

    When it comes to sensors from experience on Audi's - always buy genuine.
