+1. Once it was sorted out, I haven't had any problems. The Increased Emissions is usually the toughest since it is so non-specific. Good Luck!

Under warranty, I hope! If your current $tealer is not up to snuff, get another. Good luck!!

I feel your pain because my car has been at the dealer for last 2 weeks. I chucked the car back at them for possible cluth wear and few bit and bobs, only had the car for 6 weeks so its under their warranty. They cant diagnose the faults which is bollocks. So lets see.

Congrats on getting your car back! That was the same problem I had, along with a bad injector. The PS2s look great. How do the new tires feel?
