    Default Two weeks of ownership, time to say hello

    Hi all,

    As the title says I thought I would pop in to say hello

    I have had my V6 CDTI for two weeks now and overall I am very happy with it. I did have a problem with a missfire but after a visit to my local dealer this seems to have been sorted (software upgrade). On a whole the car is very smooth, but its quite noisy when cold and seems to "hunt" at below 1200 rpm. I am sure I will get to the bottom of this.

    The power is a little lacking for me and anything over 3500rpm is just making noise but I am used to some much higher powered cars so maybe its just me. As soon as I can get a chance to compare it with another one I will have a better idea if mine is OK or still sick.

    Economy is a bit of a mistery too, on my mixed run to work and back every day (20 miles total with 15 on the M27) I am showing about 34 MPG, which in reflection is quite good for a 3.0 litre car. I was hoping a remap would be available as with previous diesels this has helped MPG, so hopefully someone will perfect the map for this soon.

    Overall, very happy and looking forward to long term ownership......
