I'll look into that some more when the car is home, although I did give it a thorough once over when I took it all off to clean the throttle.

Anything else I could look into while I'm there?

Another update, this morning wife says engine light has now gone off, I brimmed the tank and put in a generous dose of fuel system cleaner after cleaning the throttle. Suspecting her driving style may be causing carbon build up on the injectors/plugs.
Currently in Paul Dengel's garage:
57 BMW 520d (177 bhp) SE Tourer and a 51 1.2 16v Clio Dynamique
