Also check the fuel pressure regulators (if your fuel pump and filter are ok).
Good luck and I hope you get it fixed!
I doubt a 2007 has an m70 in it.

Anything is possible but that is not very likely on such a new car.

2010 - 2007 = 5?

I have not checked on whether 2007 cars had cat. problems.

I've PM'd the original poster but not heard back.
