    Yet another niggle that I can't seem to solve reared up.
    If I turn the key all in one motion and start the car immediately all is fine, it fires up and idles as expected. If however I turn ignition on and leave even the slightest pause before I start the car, then it will still fire up ok but will only idle at just above stall rpm. It will drive ok like this but will return to the low idle at junctions etc and sometimes after a while it will start to idle normally. Like I said at the start, if I start straight up it's fine, no probs. The thing is, I like to hear the fuel pump prime before I start the car (coz I'm a bit odd I guess).
    Er, no I've not checked codes coz the lappy is in bits again at the mo. I was just wondering if anyone had had this?
    Cheers for reading my woes once again...
    Si.

    This was cured by a quick internal clean with a rag and a throttle body alignment with vagcom
