    Thanks for that Jeff.

    Failing that, get him in any case to read the error code causing it and tell you what is wrong according to the code, and how he intends to fix it.

    There is a story to this, isn't there always? I bought it at the end of September. I thought it was going through as a dealer sale, it was advertised on the business website, but when it came to paying they wanted it go through as a private sale and not part of the business which surprised me but i could understand it to a degree as it one of the owners private vehicles. Either way i didn't intend missing it , I know that my rights as a dealer sale give me much more security and consumer rights and that as a private sale are non existent. I am not disappointed with the car i absolutely love it. Whatever it needs it will get.

    OK. Bit naughty of the dealer maybe, but as you say, too nice and scarce a car to miss perhaps.
    Down to the nitty-gritty. Read the error code or get it read, and proceed from there. Probably not so much of a problem; always soluble in any event. Lots of info and advice available here when your membership "greenness" allows you access.

    If your MGOC membership number is not yet through (can take some time), PM Tim, and tell him the the application has been made and is being processed. That may help.

    I used to be indecisive but now I'm not so sure.
    When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth

    Bit different to Norway, reading the 'statutory statements' included in ads for a ZT260 dealer-advertised and now an R75V8 currently for private sale. Apparently under law a dealer in Norway has to give a full guarantee for 5 years, and a private seller 2, on all second hand vehicles. That carries a very broad definition too. You can get a refund " ... if the car is in worse condition than you as the buyer had reason to expect, based on the car's age, mileage and information you have received". No wonder second-hand cars cost an arm and a leg there.

    If you're happy then it doesn't matter. You'll soon sort the engine management light once the code can be read
