Either looking at a lazy actuator that isn't closing properly, an ill adjustment of the actuator rod or possible faulty vacuum pump not providing enough vacuum to close wastegates.

I suspect its a mechanical fault with the actuator rod (too much play causing the wastegates not to seat properly) in which case if the adjustment doesn't work its new turbos.

Well out of warranty = Not appy!!
I think we have exactly the same problem.

I'm about to do the brakes too and feel the clutch doesn't have long to live.. I'm pretty fed up and very close to just part exchanging the car tbh.
