    Welcome to the forum Mykie and congratulations on the new car. What engine is it?

    People may need a little more to go on to diagnose - suggest you get it back to dealer asap...

    It's the 2.0 tdi 140bhp. Just went and took it another run and seems to be driving ok again a little confused starting to think it might be the boost pressure sensor any thoughts?

    We can guess at problems but bottom line is you need to see if it registered a fault code. do you know anyone with VCDS ?

    Just had the snap - on diag tester on the car and it threw up a code for the boost pressure sensor as I thought. Anyone know if this is a big job? Will be going back to the garage to be fixed anyway.
