Is it actually the same system as the P38? erm... lessee (dredges through
forgettory) GEMS? or is it an updated one?
I've no real objection to electronics (mostly, the electronics themselves
are reliable - it's the connections between 'em that tend to give trouble
The real problem I have is things that turn around a tell me "dealer only
servicing". Although I gather that more of the independents are getting
testbook and/or Rovacom to be able to work on these.
one thing about the TD5, for exmaple: it's said (by some) that it needs
checking and retuning every X miles, which can "only" be done on testbook.
Is this true, either about the necessity or the doing?
