Re: DPF EGR confusion

Good morning Regarding the egr valve I did blank the egr valve off on my 2.0 diesel for a period of 18 months or so. There was a very slight improvement in fuel economy and the egr valve stayed much cleaner than was previously the case. However, the engine management light would very occasionally be...

Re: Restricted - Limp Mode

Hi Nick

I have heard of several people experiencing spurious faults and codes through the car battery being near to the end of it's life. Is this something you have looked at?

Hope you get to the bottom of your troubles.

Re: Front door puddle lights

Hi All

Thanks for your input. No I never bothered with the upgrade, it was only going to be done if it was a 'plug-in and go' option! Like BB said, too much work otherwise!

Car up for sale now too!

Thanks again, Steve

Re: been busy today........

Hi All

I have been using P7's for the past year and a half and have found them to be much quieter and longer lasting than the P6000 that were Original Equipment. Good price too I thought at £154.00 a pair.

Cheers, Steve
