If you could translate it into English then we might have a chance ;-)

Re: new ECU??

That's about 120mph.

If this is a new car you bought how about running it in?

If it is a used car I would guess that's about what you will get from a 1.8.

How many miles on it?

Also as I am at work I cannot view image shack or any other pic-host sites

In 15 years working on BMW, Vauxhall and Alfa I have never seen or heard of an ECU failing of its own volition. Just doesnt happen.

Good & Bad news really!
