    got a warning symbol on my dash! its yellow and its got an '' ! '' in the middle with a circle around it like a recycling circle if you know what i mean, like its not a full circle... and its got a small arrow at one end of the circle!

    does anyone know what that means?

    cheers!!

    Symbol is the ESP (Traction Control) light. Press the ESP button to make the light go away!

    Strange one that buddy.

    For the conversion you need a new bonnet, one from a big grille A3, but as far as I'm aware the bonnet should still close.

    As you can see from this picture on Lee_R's guide, his bonnet is locked:

    The only thing I could suggest is maybe having a look at the catch, making sure it hasn't accidentally locked itself.

    If it has been locked with the bonnet up, there should be a lever or something you can do to unlock it without too much chew.
