    Middle right indicator is oil pressure Iím guessing guys? Donít know if itís because I havenít drove the car in 4-5 days but Iíve noticed that going up and down like a goodín tonight and sure it wasnít doing that before, seems to increase with throttle depression and was going up to about 5.4 which Iím sure I havenít seen before... unless Iím going mad, anyone able to shed some light?

    You will see higher pressure on a cold engine and on depression, once the oil has done a few passes and warmed up it will start to drop.
    I topped the oil up week before last and panicked when I saw the pressure rising to 5.6, (thought I'd overfilled) sigh of relief when it dropped

    I was the same as yourself and started doubting it, I thought I knew my regular pressures but for some unknown reason it's gone, I'm always in +R and fluctuating pressures is normal, so I would say normal

    Cheers bud! Moment of panic, normally Iíd be more certain of whatís what but after 5 days not in it I started to second guess myself, I should be giving it a proper run out at the end of the week and not just a 5 minute drive to the gym and back so will see how it behaves then!

    What do you consider a normal oil pressure reading once engine etc is warmed up?

    Depends on driving styles, gears, and also temperatures,
    This morning on start up mine was 5.6-5.5, driving up the road it increased to 5.7-5.8, few miles in and it gradually dropped.
    I'm usually sat around 2000rpm in 5th or 6th and once warmed up I'm getting around 4.8-5.0 pending on the above conditions, on a fully warm engine on idle I'll see 1.2-1.4

    Not that mine or myself have ever seen a track to know I donít really pay much mind to whatcars opinions on performance cars myself... after some of the things Iíve heard about the golf Rís brakes make me think surely the FK should be ahead of it on that basis.... surely itís the looks that have got it in the position
