    i forgot to post on my other thread
    i bought my a3 on sunday and it seems to drive perfectly and no noises
    but i was showing off a bit and done a few wheels spins, and then when i turned the car off, then back on a few minutes later it started and then died. i started it back up same thing i had to rev it to keep it alive. luckily third time it just went back to normal.
    it has a very slight murmur on idle, so my old man thinks it could be idle control valve maybe. any ideas??

    thanks

    Sorry to hear that.
    Go to a garage and have it checked out mate.

    Ela re!
    New car = Warranty ... I hope you opened the engine as the manual suggests (1500Kms of driving sensibly at the 2/3 of the top speed usually not over 3000 rpms)

    Good luck!
