    I'm certainly not an expert mate but sounds similar to problems I had with my 2.2 Direct. Ended up having a new fuel pump and regulator.

    Similar symptoms with failing camshaft sensors as well iirc.

    Luckily nothing cause I'd only had the car a week! But I don't think pumps and regulators come cheap. Should be ok if you are under warranty.

    Had the same problem, got it repaired under warranty. Seems to be common problem with the 2.2 Direct.

    2.2 Direct SRi
