[Biturbos4] Check engine light

Could be anything from plugs going out (they are good for 40k max as stock) to secondary air stuff if you are a tiptronic. What maintenance have you done in the last 40k miles?
I've noticed over the last few months that when I start driving the car
from a cold start and accelerate quickly, my check engine light turns on.
I've checked with a mechanic who ran the VAG and said this was a piston
mis-fire. After four or five restarts, the light seems to go away.
Now that it's gotten colder hear in the North East, I seem to see this
problem more and more.
The car is a '01 S4, and has 89K miles on it. Could this be a sign of the
timing belt starting to go?
Thanks in advance.
'01 Silver S4
