    Default Don't need this just before christmas!

    Driving the wife's Vec at the weekend I noticed the turbo was not kicking in till around 2400 RPM, I am hoping it is just the boost sensor. I drove it again yesterday and noticed the dreaded DMF rattle.

    To top it all off it is due a service in 2000 miles which is when it will be getting the cam belt and water pump done too. Just adding all this up in my head and it equates to lots of £££'s. Really don't need to be forking out for all that around this time of year.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!
