    I noticed when I slow down to stop (i.e. take the foot off the accelerator, and apply the brake - it's an Auto) that the revs won't settle at 1100 as they usually do, but dip and bounce between 500 - 1000 before finally settling

    What is that all about..? :think:
    No problems when the car is running...

    Thanks for listening, :motz:

    Ok, ta, I will ask another silly question.

    How do I check for this? Can i pull the Maf connector out and drive around for a bit to see if the problem persists or will it be a VAGCOM job? :think:
