    Lack of power (with everything else OK) could mean air or fuel filters need changing, more likely air as you say you get black smoke (especially so if there is loads of smoke on heavy accel)

    I would also try some injector cleaner in the fuel, has a garage had a look to see if everything is OK?

    Not in Leeds. I wouldn't go main dealer £££ and not generally as good as a good independant. Good garage scheme may be worth checking out?
