yahoo, symptoms were worryningly benign. Starting took a crank or two longer when cold, torbo rattle on the over run, about 4 times the power dropped into limp mode, yellow engine light came on. Stopped turned car off, waited 20 seconds and started up again with no light and normal power. Engine was running fine and i thought they try the usual software fix first but they went the full hit. I'm a bit miffed now though as thee is a rattle developed on my way home. Sounds like a rubber mount has dropped off (not refitted correctly) or a cover has come loose and is knocking as it seems to be road surface related not engine speed related. Going to ring up tomorrow and get it in again but it is now out of warranty by a few days. I can see a row brewing...

APart from that the car is brill, love it to bits.
