[V8] Check engine light, OXS light, and "brake" light

You can add one to that list of "brake" lights - mine comes on when the engine gets too warm.  No joke.  As soon as some air flows through again, it goes right off.  I may have partially solved the check engine light, as well (and figure this one out...) but no nasty notes - I was 2 quarts down on oil (for various reasons - it goes through quite a bit) - refilled and the light went off, came back on a few times, but was mostly off on the ~50 mile ride home.

So, add oil level to the "check engine" light list.

Which begs the question, what does the Oil light do?

Apparently, I'm an idiot as well - I thought there was an OXS light that I saw, but now that Tony mentioned it, that must be a recollection from driving the GT (which I haven't done in a long time....)

I'm scared.

I do like the part of the manual that tells you that on Canadian models, if the "brake" light comes on, you may need to replace all of the wiring connections. 

Thoughtful, Audi is.
