what is the yellow engine light symbol on my s3

guys drove my s3  today for abut 180 miles, and yes the last 30 miles at about 85mph  when i got the car home i noticed the yellow engine light symbol came on my car, and will not go off the temp gauge was on half hot, engine pulls ok, will this car be ok to drive about 40 miles down for my indie vw/audi garage to check her out  or will i need the aa or tow truck to get her there

engine management light, means there is a fault related to the engine. if there is no loss of power smoke or strange noises then you should be fine,

You will need someone to plug in appropriate diagnostics kit to tell you what it is.

so ok to drive very gingerly down 40 miles to indie vw/audi garage to get it fixed i did know the fan did not come on but the engine was only half hot, had not used the car for a few weeks  either

I cant say you will be 100% fine as I don't know the under line fault, but like I said if no smoke or strange noises or anything untoward then a good chance you will be ok.

Yellow is just a warning. RTFM.  
If you get a red one that usually means STOP NOW!
