    4 years, 54k miles and my car has never missed a beat. until yesterday......

    the engine management light or as I now know, the emissions control warning light, illuminated and stayed on. Car seems to be running fine. It's due a service inc air filter in 2 months.

    any experience of this before I call audi and book it in?

    its a 2.0 tfsi quattro on 09 plate.....

    Exactly, if you were really worried you could read some other threads on issues with 2.0TFSI - then --------------!

    Is using a lot of oil? Is your tailpipe constantly being covered in black soot?

    Or even showing "wetted" on the outside? I've seen an Avensis with that (as well as my wife's 1.4 16V BBY engine Polo).

    Ok, thought I'd better update this!

    Took the car to audi who indeed informed me the car required a new complete inlet manifold. The issue was a plastic rod type assembly at the rear vacuum unit on the manifold - not available to change on its own!

    The cost for parts? £900 plus!!!

    However, as I've a full history with the dealer, they agreed to replace the manifold for £150. The remainder was covered by a mix of Audi uk and a dealer goodwill gesture, so I'm well pleased.
