    It just means your car needs a service (inSPection) thats all, nothing to worry about. Usually comes on every year or at set mileage, the garage will clear it when it's been serviced.

    There is a way to clear it yourself, I'm sure someone else will say how to do it, if you don't want a service yet.

    U can get the service done anytime u want.

    To reset it hold the brake pedal in and the milage reset counter in and turn ignition til all lights come on and hold it there it will flash then go out

    it comes up inSP (which as said means inspection/service)

    the 0 is a countdown, would have started at 1000 and go down, but as it only comes up for a couple of seconds when u start the car and turn it off, its easy to miss.

    generally service intervals are every 20k on the mk5 (with the eco1 service)

    Den: i dont think u can reset the mk5 the same way as the mk4, sure its got to be done via diagnostics (any garage can do it tho). if im wrong well thanks for the tip
