    Hi ive got a A3 3.2 quattro 8P1 with the emission light on, i took it to my local garage who said the could not see the code but reset the light. But today the light has came on again, the nearest Audi dealers are an hours drive away but the nearest VW garage is 20 mins away.

    Can a VW diagnostic machine, read the fault code on the audi ?

    Or any nice friendly menbers with VCDS in cumbria on the west coast

    Ah - see what you mean !

    However, Yorkshire is a big place and from the postcode you gave you are somewhere near York ?

    Unfortunately I am in WF3 which is Wakefield otherwise we could have maybe said hello.

    Another time hopefully ?
