    Welcome to AOC bud

    Main problems with them is smokey turbos, usually shot oil seals, check it on startup and revvng it to see if it emits any smoke.

    Airflowmeters are another, usually causing it to run bad, and flagging up the traction control light for some strange reason.

    Other things like snapped rear suspension springs, rusty wheel arches, and strut top bearing aswell, IE going over bumps and it squeaks badly

    it has a new vxr turbo with 2k on it, new afm but he has been honest and told me that when he had it replaced he got a light on the dash which when he took it vaux they said it was an inactive code relating to the lambder sensor and cleared but it has now came back on is this a problem? he said it doesnt affect the car in anyway

    It may well do depending on what the lambda sensor is reading

    It can cause the car to overfuel, sending hydrocarbon contents through the roof and it'd fail the MOT
