    Hi all,

    Got a really nice 2006 3dr a3 2.0 tfsi Quattro sline today ... Then I broke down! had a full AA inspection before buying too!
    while doing some gentle driving, the red oil pressure warning comes on. Weird, the car drove fine all day and felt fine until the warning light. Guess it is going back to the dealer to fix.

    Depspite that, I love the car ... Just hope the dealer sorts me out :)

    Anyway, here I am, officially an A3 owner. Hello everyone!

    Hi fella, not so good a start to your ownership. don't let them drag the fix out for too long before you reject it. good luck.

    In what way? I'm thinking it might be a sensor problem as the car drove fine?
