    Hi Mikey, welcome to audi-sport.net. Any pics of your of your car? Have a read at the faqs threads at the top of the page, lots of useful information in there. One of the guys will be along to advise you on the code. Enjoy the forum. :) x

    Ignore the AA guy.

    Ok so I assume its a 2.0 tdi as you havnt advised of this, given age of car & you have an overboost error, its more than likely the turbo needs either removing/cleaning or swapped out, 1st option is my belief tbh.

    You need to be very careful mate as it could go again & pop the turbo, thats a mess you dont want to have to pay for.
