    Check for white smoke on start up, the head could be on its way out. Also check the part number of the head too, they revised it a couple of times, avoid if the part number ends in A.

    Oh, also check for turbo whistle, could also be on its way out at that mileage.

    225bhp from just a remap, at a stock 140bhp? doesn't sound right mate.

    Check that its had its cambelt done at 60k & 120k, + will be due another in 20k so maybe thats a bargaining tool?

    Also check if the clutch & Dual Mass Flywheel have been done if not & it goes wrong thats £800-£1000 worth of work needed, this is especially important with the remap (which would never be 225bhp even with a hybrid turbo on this car).
    TDI PD170 S-Line Sportback... 191.2bhp & 290lb/ft torque @ standard with an iffy turbo! No idea with the new one or Shark Stage 1 remap installed, DPF off Stage 1 ready to go, Suspension & wheels to be fitted... Still....
