Did they explain how this blocked exhaust test was carried out? Did it involve a banana? As it appears you may be dealing with monkeys :lol:

I am no mechanic (or technician) but everything points to a manifold leak to me, but apparently they blocked the exhaust and the pressure was fine.

Oh I believe it was the good old hand over the exhaust pipe lol

I've had it back for just over a week now and whilst the smell inside isn't as bad as it was, it's still there - and joy of joy, my fuel consumption has plummeted to a staggering 25 mpg.

It's going back in tomorrow.

Well, they've had the car for three days and still have no clue what's wrong with it. They're now copying software from another car to see if they can sort it.

Meanwhile, the courtesy car they gave me looks like it's been driven through a rugby pitch and picked the team up as well as it is absolutely filthy inside and out - oh and they need to borrow it back tomorrow morning for somebody to have a test drive.

You couldn't make it up
