    just been doing some more reading around this online and it could also be either the N95 (controls boost) or vaccum actuator

    Can't you transfer it or get the previous owner to transfer it? Some one has paid for that or still paying for it

    So far so good. Took the car out a few times for a spin and it seems relatively good. Next issue is tracking and engine mounts have perished - excessive shaking from the engine
