Hey Guys, thought I would post for future reference.

Last Friday my partner drove the 505 to work and when she tried to drive home the car would start well, idle normally then after about 5 seconds it would cough, splutter and die.


After her colleagues looked around it turned out that the air filter was dirty and had a big whole in the side, now the air filter has been replaced and it runs well again.

Hope this helps somebody who stumbles across this in the future.

Also if anybody has a link for a 505 parts guy in NZ that would be greatly appreciated or even Australia could be of help too.
