159 Ti

35000 miles 1 year old 159 Ti 2.0D broken!

Just got my car back today, last Thursday AM a message appeared on the dashboard Engine Temp Excessive, Pull Over! As I pulled over steam/smoke poured out from under the bonnet.
AA recovered me and took me to Alexanders Thornaby (who were superb). Turned out to be the EGR cooler had blown, apparently its not that common as they had to fly the part in from Italy. I just thought I would share it with you guys.
I cannot speak hightly enough of the AA recovery, Alexanders Thornaby and Enterprise Car Hire - Thanks to all.
