    I didnt get any dash warnings. I only got it once when it was cold and i tried to pull away before it had settled and running on all 4. Even then i think it was just the vibration and the Generic engine management light telling me to stop being a D**k and wait a few mins..

    But none on the boost either... a quick plug in with VAGCOM or equivalent at a local garage can tell you which coil and when its being gay.
