    Arrrggghhhh Flaming Vx & Network Q!!!

    At the RR day my Gsi was losing a little bit of boost pressure after 3500rpm, possible actuator, still making good standard power (195.4bhp) but it could do with looking into.
    Thats fine I thought back to VX for a bit of warrenty work no prob's. Well I dug my cert out today and it ran out on the 8th Feb, gutted..

    Danny did say he knows of a guy at Vx with a Zaffy maybe get the tech2 (?) plugged in to see if there is a issue, or I'm thinking maybe its just down to the standard map??

    Any suggestions.

    I agree, power wise it's fine so I'm not too worried. Maybe something to look at when I finally get round to a stage one upgrade.

    BTW I really liked the VXR onyour FMI good touch.

    I've meet that fellas wife, when I was going to look at my zafira she was parked in the car park so I stopped to ask her if she liked it as a family wagon.

    Will call magnus tomorrow see what they suggest. As you said nothing really to worry about just now I know its not making full power i want it to.

    I wouldn't worry either at losing 4.5 BHP (ish) on a 4 year old car on a standard map, in fact, I'd be pretty pleased with that.

    Also have to say I'm please with my VX / NetworkQ warranty, had new brake pads, new clutch, 3 turbos, new gearbox, new Climate control unit, new fan and the DVD unit was sent back to Germany for replacement ........... maybe thats why I wanted to sell the thing a while back .. LOL . Still, have to say it's running really well at the moment .. touch wood.

    all within the 12 month warrenty period! I thought I'd done well with new brakes, water pump and reverse light sensor!
