The dealer has to "reflash" your 02 sensor light. On some Audi's, the dealer has to reset the O2 code first and if it comes on again, then they will need to replace the cat convertors.

What does the master warning light mean? (triangel with ! and the three lights points to the car).

This light shows operational status of traction control system. If it is constantly lit when engine is running, this means that traction control system is off. If the light flashes during driving, it means the loss of traction at the wheels, and traction control system is operating- decreasing engine torque to stop exessive wheelspin.
Good luck.

My 'DRL' light comes on ?

It means Daytime Running Lights. If the light is on, that means the light bulb for the DRL is out or not working.

OXS Dash light

There is a counter installed in the speedo cable. Open the hood and look below the coolant resevoir, there should be a black box that the speedo cable goes through. Press the reset button on the box and the light should go off.
