I have to say I'm quite suprised to hear this - everything I've read about the new M9R engine heralds it's vast superiority over the old 1.9s and 2.2s, claiming efficiency, power and reliability advantages...

I think it probably is a case of the engine not yet being fully 'bedded in' - modern diesels seem to take ages to run 'right'.
