My 600 diesel was fine this morning but after 40 miles on the A1(M) it lost power and is now pretty hopeless around town. It doesn't want to rev or accelerate and minor inclines need gear changes. The engine sounds fine at tickover and there is no whining from the turbo (as far as I can tell).
Does anyone have any ideas? Grateful for any help.

Check the intercooler hoses for splits as they are common. Also check that your brake lights are working correctly and not sticking on.

Thanks Major and thanks ETV - You were exactly right, the top hose of linking the intercooler to the cylinderhead was split for about 5cms near its connection to the intercooler. You have saved me a great deal of time, worry and money - fantastic.

You guys are a great resource.
