    Sounds like a sensor failing, probably a lateral acceleration sensor or similar. Get the codes read on VAGcom.

    Yeah, sounds like the lateral or longitudinal acceleration sensors. They are about £110 each and are a DIY fit. Undert the steering column for facelift and behind glovebox for pre-facelift.
