They’re a great car. I’ve got one of the last made, a 2005 high line estate 1.9 tdi 130. 120,000 miles full service history and not a spot of rust anywhere. 50mpg, no DPF no hassle.

Is that the same motor (ish) as the Skoda Octavia?

I had one in 2000 and loved the car.

I think the early octavia’s had the tdi engine. In either 90bhp or 110bhp. The PD engines that came later were better again, although quite noisy and with a narrow power band.
