    DPF - how bad does it get

    Hi Peter, Just had EGR valve on my X Type 2.2 diesel replaced after issues with limp mode etc. It cost £230 for the valve and £120 labour. Seems to be running really well now and I am going to start putting cleaner in the tank. I already use premium fuel. Cheers Rod

    system code?

    Hi, car just been into garage for auto gearbox oil change. noticed when home a message saying "enter system code" How do I find this? I thought this might be the radio code as they removed the battery to enable access to gearbox. I entered the radio code, pressed enter but then all greyed out and now cant do anything with it. Help Rod

    Remapping x type

    Hi Andy, I have the same but 2008 face lift. For me the power of the standard engine is perfectly ok for me and dont really see the need for extra power. Also you should probably think about what mileage your car has done and should you be putting more stress on it and how will it effect your insurance. Happy driving. Rod

    battery age

    Replaced battery with 80Ah. The battery taken off was the original dated 08 but 70Ah, so its done quite well really. Fixed label on top so I know when replaced. Cheers Rod
