    Default Can you believe this car?

    Had my Siggy back Saturday after the following has finally been replaced;
    Turbo, intercooler, intercooler pipes, catalyst, EGR valve, wastegate & actuator, fuel pump, injectors, fuel lines, throttle valve (?), mass flow sensor.

    Driving home from Cornwall today, I get the spanner light again and this time I loose 1st, 3rd and 4th gears in either auto or tiptronic.
    In full auto it stuck in 5th, the only way I could get 2nd to pull away from the Tolls was to use tiptronic and select 2nd.

    Rang Hutchins, back in to the garage again . To add insult to injury I stopped at the services for a pee and the bl00dy thing cleared itself. The spanner was showiing on the dash for a good hour though, so hopefully it should have stored a code for them.

    Interestingly enough, when the service manager spoke to Vx, they suggested a couple of things immediately although he won't confirm what they are until the get a chance to see it themselves.

    Anyone want to hazard a guess?
