    Hey guys,
    My 05 3.2 has had a bit of a lumpy idle in the morning a few times but its cleared pretty quickly on my commute when given a few beans.

    Its really not feeing too happy today though - the lumpy idle didn't shift and its feeling lumpy when running too.

    Got it booked in with AMD in Woking next week but wondering if theres anything i can check myself or if theres anyone around the Guildford / Richmond (work) area - or even in between - that would let me use their vag com to check for any codes before then?

    Cheers
    sam

    thats pretty much what i figured - bit of an update though... on the drive home last night it was the same untill a ~10 miles in.

    The emissions contol light came on and the car calmed itself down - no lumpy idle or anything!

    Light was back off this morning and the idle was back to being lumpy, along with a bit of lumpyness on cruise - nothing on acceleration
