    Finally got it sorted after £2500 spent.

    After a year and a half, i finally got my Engine Management light to stay off. After £2500 and plenty of arguing.

    Here is a list of what has been done.
    1. 2 new lambda sensors
    2. New front part of exhaust. (As i was told cat had went at 40,000 miles)
    3. Coolant temp sensor
    4. Nox sensor
    5. New middle section of exhaust as technicians broke it when trying to get EGT sensor out to test
    6. New EGT sensor.

    Fingers crossed this is it fixed now
