    fingers crossed....let us know what they diagnose, as the lambda isn't hard to change at all on the 2.0T..

    ok i had vx on the phone and they needed another hour to track the code down to a specific problem which they kindley informed me that my bill a current was around £130 around a hour later and its the exhaust temp sensor and that after ordering overnight and fitting tomorrow the total would be £238 for a flippin sensor !! but hey better sorted in one day, as ive waisted so much time and money in the past going to garages with diagnostic machines only to find they carnt sort it ,, ( right wheres that 0% balance tranfer number??)
