Thank you Funkmeister I have seen the post. I had a sensor replaced at the weekend and all seems well so far. Pads and discs also changed along with bulb to rectify the error I had with my adaptive light.

Default Replacement sensors

Had mine done, both sensors, separately, but it still lost coding. My garage did the sensors but the coding was done by a local electronics guy who has all the factory gear. He quoted "If the A8 was more popular I'd do one a day". Anyway no sign of the warning light since done. Did it make a difference to the handling? I don't drive it like a teenager (often) so hard to tell. Glad it's done though.
