Lets hope not, because that was already replaced three weeks ago. With the broken air-mass-sensor all the power was gone. 0 to 100 km/h could be accurately measured with a sun dial so to speak. My problem feels more like the boost getting to high and the motor management over reacting to get it right and not quite succeeding. By the way: today I also felt it in fifth gear. Not as pronounced as in the lower gears, but clearly noticable. Mark
