    Hi all,

    Just after a little advice if possible, on my way to work this morning the emissions light on my 1.6FSI Sportback flashed twice, a couple of seconds each time. Ive only owned the car a few weeks and its not happened before but just wondered wether its something I should be worried about or not?

    Thanks again guys!

    Just keep an eye on it - I would be more concerned if the light stayed on

    with all the electrics in the car, sometimes they decide to have a crazy day. about a week after i got mine, the emmisions light came on, power steering and esp light, pulled over, shut her down and then started up again and all was fine. like boydie said, keep an eye on it, if it stays on and then you go into limp mode, then you will need a fault code read!
