    Probably not ... But seems strange some dealers are offering free software updates to get you in and others are charging £40 for it

    Free software updates are only done during a service and it has to be the manufacturers schedule type and not the low cost dealers oil and filter only.

    Its unlikely it will cure it if you have a lack of low down power its more likely your EGR valve or swirl bar faulty on the manifold.

    Oh ok i thought the lag was just a common problem and nawt to do with egr/ swirl bar.the swirl bar is good so if i blank egr will that solve it? It just isnt nice to drive round here with it the way it is.cheers for the replies guys.
