Geez, that is one expensive motor. After I bought mine and did a search (I know I shoulda done a search before buying it), I was worried about the egr valve problems, and hence intercooler and turbo problems to follow.
I did have a rough tickover which occured after a few miles when I first bought it. I cleaned the egr valve and had it serviced and things seem alright. touch wood.
I am gonna keep mine a little while longer, I don't use it that much now as I have a works van. Probably sell it when finances allow me to buy a newer model.
