    I've got one on mine. It come with a pressure relief valve etc from KMB.

    Although it provides enough pressure I'm lead to believe it triggers the light as it does not supply what is expected.

    I think on mine they've dipped into the base calibration to change the parameters whilst its having its stage 3 mapping, I can't confirm as the car isn't back yet.

    Seems to be a common thing in the USA.

    How long has it been running ok for?

    Since Jan I've got the relief valve also was given a part number to fit it has a lower reading flow 0.6 bar before triggering oil light it's a lot better but still annoying I've been trying a 0.4-6 bar ok on tick over soon as you throttle bingo it's on again I'm thinking of buying an original 1 from audi and getting my local vag guy to alter the settings

    Was running 5/30 tried 5/40 see if it helped but to no avail was thinking of running a gauge inside the car to see what it's doing and bypassing the oil warning light
