    Keeps going into limp mode - i've cleaned the boost sensor, egr & done the old dpf filter cleanout trick but if anything it's doing it more frequently now.

    Turning it off and on solves the issue & putting it in tiptronic keeps it at bay for longer but it still goes into limp mode sooner or later.

    It had the spanner light on when i bought it a month ago or so too.

    Thanks Paul.
