Well, really losing interest in this car at the moment - the throttle feel issue as annoying as is I can live with it provided everything else is fine, but battling to get a rattle and power dip issue sorted out with the agents. They are just plain useless! A third party tuner with their diagnostics found that there's a problem with the two DISA Flaps, the thermostat (over-cooling), and the valvetronic motor - agents insist on running their own diagnostics and surprise surprise no errors come up. So much for sheer driving pleasure! Bought this car thinking that it would be a practical and low risk (mechanical issues) car! Guess I was wrong!
