I'm somewhat new to the B7 and this may be an old issue. I couldn't find a lot of info though....
'07 B7 6-spd, 106K miles:
I've had the following code pop up a couple times of late and the car seems to be idling high and not "revving down" between shifts or when the clutch is depressed to come to a stop:
01287 Idle Control System, RPM higher than expected - Sporadic 001 Upper Limit Exceeded
The first time I had the code, I had my local shop check it and they did a TB re-align (which I would have done myself had I known that was the treatment they would try). Things were better for a while, but then the sporadic raving started back up and the CEL came back today. Same code.
Any thoughts on what might actually be causing the strange idling and revving? Do I need to tell my wife it needs software and an exhaust? ; )
