    Idling problems on 1.6 a3 sport

    Hi Guys Since buying the A3 earlier this month, ive had some idling issues. When cold starting the engine starts fine, then drops revs and will flap about a bit between 600 and 1200 rpm.

    Cheers for the replys lads. Bearing in mind im 18 and its costing me 2k to insure, i dont think i can change models just yet. With the performance side of thing K&N panel filter will probably go in. Thats about it. I would like to lower it eventually. Thinking more short terms small things.
