I have a 1.9 unmapped and it is great! Came from a 175bhp low pressure turbo Saab petrol and thought I would be annoyed by the diesel power.
Couldn't be further from the truth! Very flexible engine, pulls from low down, even revs for a diesel.
Once I had worked around the initial 1st gear lull, all was well.
Mine has 72K miles, so is well loosened as it were.
I would recommened one for sure. Light weight over the front wheels, handles really well and returns pretty decent mpg if driven with a little care....not that that happens very often.....
Moved over to the dark side
And loving it
