        Don't worry too much.Mine does it when it is pushed hard with the sport button on ,when the engine is not fully warmed up.It did it twice,I took it to the dealers who found nothing.
        Try pushing the car again and see what happens,make sure it is nice and warm first

          Its the clever box of tricks that plugs into you cars ECU (the computer that runs everything). This is what Vauxhall retailers used to do diganostics, and minor software updates etc

                  ITS FIXED..... I just took it out, i think the engine may have been cold yesterday thats why, warmed it up for about 20mins drving slow etc then put the sport mode on and gave it some proper welly and it was fine it was like before back to normal....... The answer is let the car warm up before you hammer it as it will go into limp (go home mode).......

                      LOL! see - told you it was nothing serious x you gotta remember that when you start modding your car you have to look after it more than a standard one xx so always warm the car up, always give it good fuel oh and wash it once in a while xx

                              Your right, just leave it to warm up and its fine.
