    Hi. I have just got my S3 (new to Audi's) and after switching the engine off, a pump that I believe to be the air con pump (or around there) continues to run for about 10min. Is this
    1.The air con pump?
    2.Is it normal?
    3.If not, what the devil is it and should I get it seen to?

    Thanks
    SM
