This has happened 3 times now in the past week, driving along, then 80% of the pwer disapears, it feels like your driving with the handbrake on full (obviously its not) it hardly revs and struggles to reach 50mph+ if you turn the car off then on again its works fine for a while then it starts again....

also for the first time the emissions sensor has flashed up with a take to garage text on the dash.

anyone have any experience with this? rough cost? fix?

Have you had the car serviced recently? Might need a plug in VAG.com to help answer it before spending money on other things. Only a thought as I'm no mechanic so no idea what else to say
