P3081 Engine temperature too low

That DTC is indicative of a missing thermostat, a stuck open thermostat, or a cooling system with 100% antifreeze. If you have pure antifreeze in the system it may need flushed and refilled properly. This code is pretty common for Audi vehicles, I would suggets just having the code deleted and if it comes back inspect the antifreeze and thermostat.
