You need a Bosch service centre ( boschcarservice,com ) and find your nearest centre it will be a normal looking garage I say this as your car is fitted with Bosh common rail.

I am more worried about the starting problem in the morning or when it is cold.
It is drinking more fuel.
Can the fuel filter clog

Les Pauls Motors Ltd 0208 5518537 they are in Woodford Green.

I know the Bosch workshop network they have the backing of Bosch and there software.

Any other garages please
Will they do all test
Roughly how much will it cost for the inspection
Customer: replied 12 days ago.
What part will I need if any

For other Bosch centres go to and put your postcode in as to cost 2 hours to diagnose I would expect.

Regarding parts that depends on what is diagnosed it might just need a software upgrade.
