Yeah I would probably do it once or twice in a year!

Im just hoping it might be your vanos solenoid, if it fixes yours i will do mine even though not had a code of some sort.

As for the acceleration just as Enrita explained.
Yeah it kinda sucks if that is the case, I guess I will know soon enough in a week or two.

I am on the drive map now as per recommendation by Ian till I get the vanos solenoid replaced.

Surprisingly is pretty good, even though it doesn't have the punchiness as the sport or aggressive map, it feels very smooth and stock like!
