    Despite doing >20k miles per year the fuel savings over the 2.0L Aero are now not looking likley to offset the problems I need to budget for in running my TTiD. I expect a DMF will need doing within the next 12 months as it's on 104k miles now. The intake manifold is a serious source of worry...
