    I can only take it to a garage that would charge me £40 for the diagnostics, but no CEL or errors off the OBD2 as said

    2.0 TFSI Help needed- Rev limited

    Hi Guys, I have a problem with my car while driving and also parked. It is a DSG and it will not rev above 5k as if it hits a limiter- Please see video and help me diagnose this. This in the video is under 3/4 throttle but happens regardless of pressure. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

    What do you do for a job?

    Hi Tim, Is that with a downpipe as well? I'd like to go for a Stage 2 at some point and wondered if a sports cat/ stock are fine?
