Great holiday, bloody car

Took the 335 to the south of france, didnt skip a beat all the way down there even managed a mpg o 31!!!

Fire her up a week later, misfires all the way home! Oh well, just what i need after spending a shedload on holiday.

Thats a bummer

Sounds like the dreaded coil packs on the way out.

Hope you get it sorted out quickly.

Pulls like a train Phil! No 30FF since you changed the bits on the vacuum side.
Map 5 it will still throw a code at 6000rpm so im thinking the actuator arms need sorting or just replace the turbos with Vargas stage 2s next year.
