    having really pushed the engine today for a short while after a hours worth of driving today the oil pressure light popped up, so i backed off the power and put the car into neutral, the warning went off, then i went to a stopping place, and the car was running as normal. oil level seems to be ok, just wanted your views on what may have caused this? maybe add more oil or add a oil additive to it to thin it down a bit ?

    its got long life and the OBC says its got another 4800 miles or 360 days, I must add that i was ragging the arse off the engine when it kicked in, I will have it in for its yearly service next month at Audi.
