My 20v has the same symptoms when starting, but it's a 156! Just wondering about the software she's running.

Well recommended
Can i be rude and ask what the total price for this work was??

My 08 2.4 is slightly lumpy on cold start etc and service is due in few hundred miles.

the Swirl flap..... what is this??
Does deleting the DPF filter make a big change?

159 Ti

After having a 2.4 ti, with this issue, I wouldn't mess about with glow plugs, updates etc etc. Get it mapped but most importantly change the inlet manifold for a new one. You would not believe how gunked up they ALL get.
This is not just because I am selling this;

but genuinely I spent mega bucks trying to sort mine and this was the only thing that worked.
