Go to "www.myturbodisel.com". Great website. So is TDI Club, but I've found myturbodiesel to be easier to use with lots of great info.
One thing on the car your considering is maitenance. Engine oil to be sure. Friend of mine runs and shop and we were talking about pump duse's and pre mature cam wear/failure.....his opinion was owner neglect on oil changes. PD's also run a different injection system than mine...little more complicated.
Other than standard maint., if it is manual tranny...how many miles. I had to replace mine at 268K. Fifth gear left the spline. Tranny supplier said I got 68K more than most. Also, these cars tend to have intake get clogged at the EGR valve (like thottle body). Will cause limp mode, i.e., turbo will not spool up until you recycle the key. Anyway, I could go on and on...but bottom line on my car is that it has done excactly what I had hoped on fuel economy and been reliable.
