Regular servicing makes all the difference in my opinion, and I make sure that anything that needs done gets done timeously. I also think they benefit from being well used. If I was buying something for occasional use than it probably wouldn't be a dCi.
Thanks. I think you hit the hammer on the nail. Regular servicing. The one we looked at with the new turbo hadn't had a air filter change since new! Apparently it was black and coked even though it went in for its 18k service. 18k miles seems alot between services..
