    Most likely an intermittent fault on the brake light switch. ideally scan with VCDs to detect fault. Easy DIY change.

    Is your wheel alignment out? For example your steering wheel not pointing directly straight when going straight, if so that will be causing your esp light to come on.

    run it into a garge get it scand for 30ish pounds job done if you plan to keep the car for a few years it would be worth paying out 200 to 300 for the vag for your self. maybe some one on here near you who will scan it for you for a drink also

    Buy a cheap £15 OBDII cable on ebay & download VCDS Lite & register it with Ross Tech ($99 IIRC) to get the extra features. Mine has paid for itself many times over.
