    Default Not what I wanted to see

    I've owned the car for 3 months with no problems at all ...........till I was driving last night and this lights came on : see pic attached

    The light stayed on but there was no effect on the performance which is just as well as I was going 70ish at the time.

    I've checked the manual and its listed as a problem with the emissions , I did think the exhaust seemed to be making more noise than normal over the last couple of days so hopefully its nothing more serious than replacing part or parts of the exhaust.

    Any help or suggestions welcome

    Have you access to a diagnostic tool at all? A diagnostic tool can clear the fualt and also check what teh fault was....

    You could try the pedal test to see if any fault codes come up (Search for pedal test on the site).

    Appart fro the exhaust sounding louder than normal is there any loss of power etc?

    I had this light come on mine and it turned out to be a fault lamda Sensor (o2 sensor). Cheap fix at arround £50 for the part if i remember properly.

    To give people a heads up on your car can you confirm the engine size / type and year (ie. 1.8 z18xe 2004 in my case).

    I think it's a 2.0T from the rear photo in the garage.

    Thanks coldo , Chewy71 is correct its a 57 plate 2.0 Turbo Btcc

    I don't have access to diagnostic tool but I'll have a look on flea bay , I'll also have a look at the Pedal test on here .

    There hasn't been any loss of power at all and its was just mot'd when I bought it and it passed the emission test with no problems and no advisories on the exhaust.

    I would guess that it's an 02 sensor then if the perfromacne is not effected.

    but best to get it checked...

    They are Mega Rare... XP2 kit with the 2.0 turbo petrol engine with a different front bumper (looks the same as the BTCC cars) and a rear defuser I think....

    Might be wrong on this however...

    I posted a few pics of the car when I joined a few months ago and there was a bit of a debate as to which model it was since it didnt fit as an XP1 or 2 and eventually it was decided its a Btcc special edition which has slightly different trim eg: VRX style gear stick and steering wheel and Btcc rear defusser and 19" snowies as standard there is a link on here somewhere I'll see if I can find it and copy you on it ........... So you were right its the secret special addition haha
