I’ve also had issues in the past with other BMW diesels where it’s needed a new fuel filter as the fuel demand when driving hard couldn’t be fulfilled by the old and dirty fuel filter. Also had it on a Volvo S60 D5. The car would stutter and seem like it cuts out for a split second, does that sound familiar? Prob not 🙁
That's exactly what it feels like (I couldn't properly express myself :D ) - it's like it cuts out for a split second. Interesting you say about the fuel filter. My friends garage also change the fuel filter for me - so maybe something went wrong there.

Having second thoughts about having code sorted. Hope it doesn’t lead to more issues. Car runs perfectly ok just the code. Regeneration is fine. Maybe it is the controller as it sorted your issue out. However they said my controller is fine at dealers. Having the seller check it out Wednesday. Having to drive a shitty manual corsa for a day is two.😩

The positive side to your situation is that now you will even more appreciate the power of X5 when you get it back :)

Yeh was a relief when u got it back today
The corsa was a good driver but it’s clutch was way to high and I struggled to drive it properly start stop.
I’ve asked for a Insignia for a week when they book it in for long repair.
Seems they have no clue and will send it to Bmw specialist for diagnostics and repair. Got a few more codes now for them to sort. One on auxiliary heater and other to do with dpf which has since cleared.
