    The traction light has come on and not too sure whether to go to audi directly about it or would a Audi specialist suffice. Any advice?
    Cheers

    This happened to me 2 weeks ago. Sounds like you need the ESP / ABS repairing. Cost me £300 from local audi vw specialist using genuine audi parts. I think the part is about £150-160 but I didn't feel confident enough to drain all the brake system and then fit and bleed.
    it is a common problem
