    Might be worth checking the turbo and air hoses. It's not uncommon on turbo diesels for the hoses to split or weaken to the point that they collapse when sucking the air through. Particular favourite on a Landrover is the intercooler hoses.

    Fingers crossed as it's a relatively cheap fix.

    Almost sounds like it's in 'limp home' mode or potentially an ignition issue. You may have some dodgy plugs or igniter, even.

    Try resetting the ECU first, just to see if it is in fact in limp mode. I'd then suggest checking the basics - fuel, air, spark.

    W├╝rde mal mit nem GUTEN Tester auslesen, der auch live die Daten auslesen kann. Eventuell siehst du dann was.
    Benzinpumpe wird es wohl nicht sein...

    I would check with a GOOD OBDII Tester that supports live data. You might be able to put a finger on what is faulty.
    I guess its not the fuel pump

    Could be the same thing I've got. I just posted about it in another thread. See if you can influence it by moving the main engine wiring loom around. If so, could be bad plug connection.

    NGK laser Iridium and they only lasted 12k?! Seems dodgy, they're supposed to last about 100k!

    Do you have non-blurry photos of the spark "heads"? Might give a clue as to what the problem is. I have those NGK sparks in my Copen, and I've not had any problems with them in ~5 years.
