In the last cople of weeks I have had two strange readouts appear in my computer display. The first one (which has not come back - and it's been over two weeks now) sais ''Service Stability System Soon''. Several days long before that I hit I hit a monster pothole thay severly bent one of my aluminum wheels and made it unusable. Then just a couple of days ago a display read ''Speed limited to 155 mph'' but there may have been something displayed just prior to that that I did not notice. Any ideas what's going on?

Most cars should idle below 1000rpm, something is wrong to be running at 8000rpm and yes this would definitely increase your petrol consumption as well as getting strange looks from other road users! Check accelerator pedal or cable for obstructions!
I dont think this is a problem. I have the same noise when openning the doors on my 2009 1.8t a4, u might also get this sound when you open the trunk as well. this is probably a manufacturing thing. it could be that the car senses that the door are open so that it would prepare the on board computer for ignition or something of that sort... thats my guess though!! but i believe its normal
Automatic transmission are complex systems. The shifting of gears is based on a number of things like bands, speed, acceleration, deceleration, manifold back pressure, RPMs, temperature, etc.
Sometimes the electrical ground connection for the transmission can become corroded which causes poor shifting.
Since you are getting an error code, you should get a readout for it. Many auto supply store like Advance Auto will loan a meter for you to get a readout. Call up some stores to find one.
