I can second that opinion form a previous car life. Having owned Saabs for years I read most threads at saabscene.com. Loads of these complain about egr/buttefly issues with the 1.9tid.
A link took me to the Audi owners club. One chap took his A3 into the dealer complaining of restricted performance and error messages. The service manager took the car out for 15 mins, gave it a damn good thrashing, returned it and told the owner to do likewise once in a while. Especially if the car has lots of shorter journeys. Its all down to the emission restrictions they strangle the cars with today.
So I make sure that I do just that. Within legal perameters of course.
