DPFs are fine if you know how to look after them. That is, don't spend your entire time tootling to Tesco and back.
petrol or diesel (again !)
Oops missed the ops post. Op I'd get a towbar fitted and a towbar mounted rack.
Re looking after your dpf- bro in law has a 60k motorway miler 09 2.0tdi mk6 Golf with a recent dpf issue.
This week I read about a 09 Insigna miler owner coughing up 1700 because GM reckon its 'a wear and tear item' not warrantable
What was the issue though hora? Of course no component is perfect but your chances are vastly reduced if you understand the thing, as with most mechanical objects I think.
if you like low-revving, and the associated noise AND high fuel bills, get V8...
535i V8 here
I just got the new qq+2 on contract.
I got the 1.6 Petrol S/S, nearly went for the diesel but the petrol is impressive MPG - currently av about 38/39 mixed driving with roof-rack on. It's not the quickest car, but it's a fine practical motor and very well specced with good boot arrangements.
This is on a new engine too, I guess it may return better over time.
