    It would help greatly if you tell us the age of your car, and what model you have before we can comment Gussy.

    Yes, that helps a lot, it's an 8P A3 then, I will move this post to the correct forum, and you will get a response and answer hopefully.

    Had a similar concern on my 2004 a3. Nothing to do with the head gasket. By any chance have you been doing small distance journeys? Check that the bottom of the dipstick hasn't got it & you'll be fine. All your car needs is a good ride on the motorway for the oil to warm up properly & it will clear it out. Hope this helps!
