This is a common problem - I had is happen several times. A Lambda sensor will be failing - if the ECU thinks the engine is running rich it put it in limp home mode. The sensor that has failed will be in the very hot part of the exhaust (if I remember there are 4 and 2 are in the down pipes) which is why it takes time to fail i.e. when the car has warmed up. I used to get replacement in the US (Rock Auto) or Alibaba and have an independant fit them. One of them is a pain TO FIT because you have to take a seat out to access the connector.
I too have been trying to avoid any black colour, but the choice seems limited. The other thing that worries me is the size of the wheels. Honest John , of the Telegraph, says to avoid 19 inch and go for 18 inch ones for better ride. Thanks for the tip re ivory rubber mats, didn’t know they even existed.
Gents. If AFS is the folllow you round corners headlight guidance then it’s a no ☹️
On a side note, new price arranged. The rear lights for the two that want them are £200 a set delivered, delivery is from the U.K. as far as I know.
We do need to get to 10 sets of rears to get a discount on them and it should be this side of Xmas or soon into the new year. With 10 sets the guy can do them for £327 plus shipping and taxes inbound from China so will be cheaper if we get them as a 10 and split the shipping and taxes. I can get an estimate of this once we get to 10 sets.
We are at circa 5 sets now so spread the word!!
