Do you feel like you've got to keep it in neutral for a second or two before being able to select another gear?

I thought these style of headlights were illegal...? I looked at some a year back for my Mk2.5 and somehow got the impression that they were illegal. :/

When mine regenerates (1.6tdci) there's a very noticeable burble coming from the exhaust at idle. Kind of like it, wish it was always sounded like that :D

I have had a look under the bonnet for split pipes, but I can't see and reach all the way down to the intercooler. I do have a funny feeling that it is some sort split somewhere in the forced induction circuit, because I do hear air escaping from somewhere.

Turbo also appears to be a little louder than normal but I'll ask them to check its condition on Wednesday.

Shall update this thread after diagnosis on Wednesday.

Thought I'd add to this...

Not sure if it's related or not but WOT appears to occur at around 35% throttle pedal position. If I put my foot to the floor then the car's acceleration is worse than when the pedal is depressed by 35%. You'd think that foot to the floor would mean the best acceleration, but no I get the best acceleration when the pedal is barely depressed. 

 

Scenario: Put foot to the floor car accelerates OK-ish, but as I bring the pedal back up to effectively slow the rate of acceleration the car actually accelerates faster and I get more power. Odd. Also the engine is very sensitive to the slightest press of the accelerator, and will rock when the pedal returns to 0 position no matter how gentle you are with the pedal.
 

The noise occurs with and without the air con being switched on so I don't think it's due to low gas.
