    If you fancy popping over to M62 junction 28 (Tingley ) I'll do a diagnostic check for you.

    Do you have a problem or is it just a check ?

    I can head this way! Yeah, yesterday the car stopped revving in 2nd gear at about 4000rpm then after that was majorly slow to rev past 2500 rpm. It's been suggested it could be a leak or MAF or poss my turbo, (which has been making the siren whistle lately).

    Funny thing is, the car was fine on the way home and this morning but i'm not trusting it!

    When is good for you? Weekend perhaps?

    Thanks

    No - that only covers vehicles up to 2004.

    Proper VCDS genuine cables are about £250 and can be obtained from a forum member NHN.

    See sticky at the top of the VCDS forum for 'VCDS Supplier'
