    The 2.5tdi V6 is know for cool runnings, mine barely moves from 60 in this weather, but a blast down the motorway gets it up to around 75/ 80 max. I've been told that they are very heat efficient and the exhaust takes away most of it. Wouldn't bother doing the thermostat unless at a belt change.

    I have VCDS and I'm not afraid to use it, well, a little bit?
