    Ahh, mine did it going up birdlip hill as i was overtaking a lorry flat out. the car behind me nearly rammed me.

    Its very random as well, at 90ish its fine (monkeys per hour, not miles per hour obv :P) and then it will cut out, flat out it is fine, then it will just go ll odd! :S

    Mines doing similar mate..

    At motorway speeds and normal driving speeds e.g. round town and to work on A roads it is fine and hasnt played up. But as soon as i come off a motorway slip road or slow down to around 40-50mph after doing higher speeds for a time the EML light is on and revs are limited to 2500rpm. However, when i come to below 20mph.. light goes out and all revs are back..

    But saying that.. i got my hands on a Mac Tool code reader yesterday for a bargain price off a mechanic mate of mine and it wudn't do it on the motorway when i took it on there last nite... Oh well going to donnington at the weekend.. im sure it will do it again at some point!
