I was driving my new (to me) '01 Beetle for the first time, got off the freeway after about a 15 minute drive, and my oil light and buzzer came on, then went off after a few seconds, did it again a few minutes later. I took it out the next day, no light. Started driving it to work (100 mile round trip), no light for three days, then flicked on for a second after day three. Is this something to be concerned with, is it a sign my oil pump is going bad? Car has 173,000 miles on it, checked the oil and level is fine...

It could be either the oil pressure sensor, low oil pressure (worn bearings or worn pump), or chafed wiring.

Any mechanic shop should be able to measure the oil pressure. I believe VCDS should have the oil pressure reading in one of the engine measuring blocks but you need that tool to view this information.
