    Had the 'emissions' warning light come on today - the one in the shape of an engine/gearbox and lights up orange.

    Mine came on after the car had been parked up for an hour - fine before then.

    I've got it booked in with my local Dealer - but they can't fit it in til Thursday next week! They tell me it's safe to drive providing the light doesn't flash..........but I'm a bit wary.

    Anyone else had this?

    Cheers

    Is it the same as a dpf light? You might just need a regenerating then. is tehre anyone nearby with vcds/Vag-com that could scan it for you? Put a thread in that section here and soemone might help, i would but im a bit far away!

    Took the Quattro into the local dealer today.......

    Seems my Exhaust Recirculation Valve is faulty.

    They've got a new one on order which will be fitted under warranty tomorrow, and whilst they're waiting they're replacing the oil cooler, and something to do with the phone system - as recommended by Audi (again under warranty).

    In the mean time I've got a basic 58 plate 1.9D A3 on the drive and can't say I'm impressed in comparison with my motor!

    My new wheels are due to arrive tomorrow - so looking forward to getting the car back, and slipping them on:drool:
