    Default Issues straight out of the box

    When I test drove the 2003 2.2dti SRI it did feel a bit down on power, but as it was a limited test drive down an industrial estate I didn't really get to flog it, nor did I test the CD player.

    So, picked up last night and didn't get to stress it in the traffic, then when it opened up I planted it, very slow, like v e r y slow, then hit 50mph and it went into limp mode. restarted car, still very slow, of course, but limp did clear.

    WAs too angry to call stealer, so left it until this morning and crawled to work this morning, I have another garage looking at the EGR and boost sensor, for starters, so we'll see on that one.

    I also tried one of my many CDRs in the standard CD2005 head unit, either got NOCD or CD ERROR warning, is that a faulty player or do these units not play CDRs? only originals?

    The garage doesn't open until 10 so I emailed the problems through and left a message asking them to digest it before I call later today.

    Personally i would not off taken it to another garage but just handed the car back to the seller to sort .
    Try to find out and record what fault codes are being generated we should then be able to stear you in the right direction from there .

    I would prefer to take it back too, but its out of the way, and given the lack of power I do not feel safe driving it, nor do I 100% trust the yard, so I thought atleast, if I get it started with a clean, I can rule that out and know for sure it is done. Then perhaps take it back to the yard for an EGR replacement, MAF replacement or whatever.
    The garage downstairs is gonna read the computer to, so hopefully will get some codes off it. My VAG computer apparently the codes but there was none stored, but I may need an OP-COM to properly read the codes.

    Sorry too for posting in wrong section, I considered it a discussion not so much technical, but I see it is now.
