: S3 ESP problem

My S3 is around 8 months old... no problems up until about 3 weeks ago when I braked going into a dusty corner. Message came up on the display "ESP Fault" & something about reading the owners manual.
If I switch the car off for a while, it's fine for about 20 minutes then I get the same message & the ESP light stays on.
There is a definite change in handling... no ESP, bad torque steer, feels like the 4wd might have switched off as well...
It has been into Audi & they cleared the error and said that it was fine... sure :mad: 20 minutes of driving & same thing happens.
They have ordered some or other control unit but it's on back order at the moment, and I don't think they know whether or not this will fix the problem. :huh:
Any ideas???
