    Is it normal for there to be a slight pause between pressing the accelerator and the response on my a3 1.6?
    Theres about 1/2 a second gap and its slightly getting on my nerves!

    Could the air flow sensor be gone?

    I need to find out if its abnormal so I can get the dealer i bought it from to fix it lol!

    So its definately not normal?

    I have it booked into my local audi dealer tomorrow to fix this, and another problem where the ESP light stays on constantly which means that the traction control is turned off (or the other way round).

    Only bought the car on Friday, so hopefully won't be paying for it :fingerscrossed:

    I got my ESP light problem fixed, it was a temperature sensor problem apparently, which I'm still confused as to how that was affecting my traction control???

    They said they could not see any problem with the accelerator delay. Maybe its just what a3's are like, i probably need to see if another a3 is the same, if its not a problem then its quite annoying as clutch control on hills is difficult as when i increase pressure on the accelerator the car responds 1/2 a second later :(

    Not really, theres one near my work (Basingstoke) which is where i've just picked it up from and one about 20 mins drive from my house (Guildford).

    It wasn't me who paid for the ESP problem to be fixed, it was the trade seller i bought it from who agreed for it to be looked at. He's the one who's been in contact with the Audi dealer all day so i'm not sure what was said.
    I can't help thinking that if it was me that was paying for it to be fixed, not the seller, that Audi would have asked me if I wanted it to be fixed.
