I had an oil leak, so I replaced 2 sensors.  It beeps after 2000 rmp's & oil pressure light shows on dash.

It is possible you put the sensors in the wrong position. One is a low pressure sensor and one is higher pressure. They look very similar. Check part-numbers on them and compare to your manual to be sure they are correctly places. Also, be sure to run the proper viscosity of oil as that can also cause pressure warnings. This fault is perennially discussed on most VW forums. Check out the forum community on VWVortex dot com for more tips and assistance.
