    Is your car a 2.0TDi? I bought mine in January and had the same police siren sound. I use the motorway to work everyday and was fine up to 80mph but the If I went over for more then a few seconds it went into Limp Mode :-(

    Purchased a re-con/exchange unit from Ebay and got an Audi Independent Garage to change it and its now sorted... No siren and happliy goes over 80mph! Sorry for the sad news but wasn't to bad.. £282 for the re-con turbo and fitting was £232 with oil change.. Least I know everythings good now
