Hi guys, Firstly can I say the standard of driving from youngsters and mainly young girls is atrocious and with such powerful little cars no wonder premiums are high along with accidents, does it take an accident for them to learn ????,................... anyway back to the problem. Had a "racing driver" in a golf up me arse so decided to floor it a little just to prove a point when he disappeared in a cloud of smoke ha ha. Not sure who got the biggest shock him or me. I couldn't believe how bad it was so what can it be ???. I read the thread from dieselman about the EGR which seems a bit drastic. Has anyone done this bypass and did it work plus is there a part change that will do the job. I dont have the equipment to do the bypass and don't know of anyone that could do it so any suggestions greatly appreciated.
