I bet the EGR valve has never been replaced although they usually go before 150k. My focus experienced similar problems to what you are describing and it did turn out to be the EGR valve. Dont think i threw up any error codes either

 

Do you ever experience the revs just dropping off when your say stopped at a roundabout and the car stalls?

Not sure on the bushes mate..

 

It was mentioned in my last service that the 'anti roll bar linkage has slight play in ball joint'. Is this something i should be majorly worried about? costly to fix? My car is going in for a service this thursday, wondering if i should ask them to sort the linkage?

Have you tried sticking some redex in and giving it a good thrashing in 3rd gear for a sustained period, might just need a good clear out. I can get high 60s on long motorway run in 6th gear at just below 2000rpm

I had a similar issue to this and it did turn out to be the egr valve. Mine also did not show any error codes...so had it replaced in the end. egr's seem to have a life span of under 100k. Mine went at 88k
