I'm on my third 1.9jtdm. 2x 159s and in the GT Q2.
If maintained properly its a pretty good unit. I'm on 95,102 miles currently, and all is good. Still on original clutch and DMF (he says touching wood....).
The GT was fine without a remap, but the 159s do need a little fettling to make it feel "right". Mines got approx 190bhp and feels great. As can be seen in the Fuelly sig below, giving pretty reasonable mpg over all.
Many have had the DPF and EGR removed/deleted, but I'm fine with mine as they are. Just needs a good drive and the system does its job and regenerates, clears the soot out.
It still sounds like a tractor at start up, but once you are going, it could be anything under the bonnet, pretty quite and very refined. And for a FWD car, handles really well.
