    Default cheap fix hopefully

    just changed the 2 turbo solenoid valves on my edition 100,as spanner through car emissions symbol kept appearing ,and local dealer wanted to book it in,but went on troubleshooting section and it seems these were the problem.cost 26 quid and so far so good,as power seems to be back.this is such a handy forum

    Result mate, glad it's sorted, lets hope that emissions symbol remains off.

    If your unlucky (like me) it'll be the diaphragm in the turbo - easy but ages for the part to arrive from Germany) Common fault mate.

    you will know within 100 miles if its worked
    the fault would still be there even with the new solenoids in place

    and would drop into loss of power/turbo
