Believe it or not, this is exactly what is supposed to happen.  You see,
in Audi's infinite wisdom, they decided to rig a light to come on when the
coolant temp is too *COLD*.  If you don't believe me, look in your owner's
manual.  You're not supposed to run the car hard until this light goes
out.  Weird, huh?  At least that's one less thing to worry about.
