    Booked the GSi into Vauxhall...

    Bloody cars.

    Coolant light keeps flashing on and off as and when it feels like it...im not that fussed about it, but the time I ignore will be the time there really isnt any coolant in the system

    Actually I am concerned about it as I seem to be losing coolant too Not alot, but it cant just vanish? I read somewhere that the water pumps maybe the cause here?

    Boost.

    My boost seems to be fluctuating like a proper good-un.
    Kicks in, drops off, kicks in...not that ideal especially as I approached a tiht corner last night
    Yet to purchase a boost guage but, again its on the list 'to do'...

    Thank **** it is within warranty Fingers crossed they will blame the turbo and I can get myself a nice VXR unit on there!

    Diagnosis and repair report tomorrow evening...
