    My first Audi, my first convertible and first old car since I was 17......bought today 1997 2.8 V6 with 105k miles. Not my first choice of colour or interior colour but wanted a useable relatively reliable car for summer weekend use at a reasonable price.
    Has aftermarket lowered suspension, different wheels and exhaust and pretty much everything seems to work.
    Typically as soon as I'm home from collecting a warning light pops up on the dash (pic attached)...does anyone know what this means please?

    Looks to be in good nick for its age! That looks like a bulb out warning to me but I'm guessing off the picture.

    Front standard speakers were barely audible. Spotted a few posts about changing them, fitted new pioneers in 20 mins using really good online tutorial...soooooo much better. Just need a date for cambelt, pretensioner and waterpump change before any trips out on sunny days are planned. Given theres no history of job ever being done it'll give piece of mind
