Default First technical problem

I'm 11500 miles in and I've had my first technical problem.

The car went into limp mode on the way to work and the orange coiled wire light was flashing on the dash.

Took it to the dealers where they diagnosed a leaking addblue injector which has leaked ammonia over the turbo actuator. So I need those new parts.

Being looked after very well and should be fixed in a couple of days. (when the adblue part arrives from Germany)

Other than that no drama's at all. Tows the caravan beautifully and the air suspension is perfect for lifting the car when driving on and off fields. :-)

Sorry to hear, but I guess these things happen.

I too have found the (D3's in my case) adaptive air suspension brilliant for a spot of off roading here and there!
