Hi, Seasons' Greetings to all, first! I have a 51 plate 1.8T Sport well looked after and serviced etc. On very cold mornings, such as like we are having now, I occasionally have this small glitch. I don't think there is anything wrong per se. I think I read on here that these tend to be odd sometimes on cold start. Usually I don't have all the power until after driving for about 20 seconds - until it starts closing the automatic choke it would seem. Tonight, when leaving work I was in a hurry and tried to pull away a little rapidly just after starting. The revs struggled and fluctuated rapidly under 1000rpm making the needle on the rev counter go up and down. I had to kill the engine and start it again, after this it was fine and ran perfectly as I half expected anyway. I've had similar experiences before but it doesn't do it all the time - like the wife it picks its moments to play up! It was quite embarrasing in front of my work coleagues as I'm quite proud of my A3!! Any similar experiences? I don't think anything needs fixing especially. Runs fine and idles fine at optimum temp and cold temp - the latter as long as you just let it run in the drive for a few seconds in the cold before pulling away! cheers.
