oil pump is losing pressure or pressure sensor is faulty. Since it only happens at idle I'd suspect the pump is on its way out (or possibly the oil drive chain is stretched?)

Unlike the Bosch CP4.1 failures in VW/Audi tid, the CP3.2 has been quite reliable. My guess is that you got some contaminated fuel.

I can't remember another CP3.2 failure reported here.

You're taking the chance of voiding powertrain/emissions warranty.
If you do choose to go with B20 then keep an eye on your oil level and you may want to get an oil analysis at around 5k mi.
