    16 valves and 140bhp isn't it? Sounds like a cool car, anything added/modded? Any plans?

    Also is it as cold in Huddersfield as it is up here in Scotland just now?

    hi mate 170 hp standard but recently had it re mapped when i removed the dpf filter its now just over 190hp but there is still a problem with the car as it should be producing over 200 !
    i have a problem with it blowing white smoke on idle, i have been tried many things so far but not got to the bottom of the problem yet
    its not as cold as it is up by you i understand but still chilly in a morning and evening
