    Could be a number of things mate only someone with a vagcom computer will be able to plug it in and read the fault code.

    If its still under warranty then just get it back to Audi and tell them to fix it.

    It probably is something simple but without a VAG-COM scan you have no way of knowing where the problem lies.

    if it helps, this was apparently caused by a faulty throttle body with my A3, something made me a little suspicious though, maybe the fact the dealer had them in stock

    Not quite a throttle body I can't remember what the official name is.

    Beware though if it is you'll probably find that it has also taken out the fan controller fuse.

    Yes it is a common fault, the Audi Assist guy had one on the van and fixed mine at home.
