Got a 2013 2.9tdi mk2 TT today, noticed it ran the fans for quite some time after turning off and locking. Is this normal?!

I believe the car was mid way through a DPF regeneration. As you turned the car off early the car was cooling itself down as the temperature involved are crazy around 600 degrees

Thanks, i had a brand new A3 in 2008 and then an A4 in 2010 and I didn't recall either of them doing it. Went on for just over 5 mins in the end. Car seems fine though!
