    Hi all,

    Picked up my lovely new S3 8V SB last week have about 500 miles on the clock already.
    Absolutely fantastic car, however was parked with the engine at idle in a car park yesterday and the car started vibrating and the emission light came on. Revved the engine and it seemed to sort itself out and return to normal.
    Car driving perfectly since. Any idea what it could have been?

    Thanks

    I suppose in these days of high technology it could be any number of things. But hopefully it should have logged a fault code so get it into the dealers as soon as possible.

    Sounds like you run on 3 cylinder there for a short time and fuel didn't got burned. Faulty coil or sparkplug?
