    Whats the most reliable? Used to have a 2.0tdi before and looking to buy a 2006 avant. Was thinking of a 1.9 and remapping as lots of things seem to go wrong with 2.0's or is this just how it appears on forums?

    1.9 is most reliable by far but lacks the extra grunt, a remap will help but not as much as a 2.0 remapped.

    The 2.0 140's dont have too much trouble just choose carefully.

    Used to have a BLB 2.0 as did not know about oil pump problem until seeing it on hear. What do I need to look out for on BRE engines? Think I will buy either 1.9 or 2.0. Depends on price/cost/car.

    Don't recall any real cause for concerns on the BRE engines unlike the BLB.

    I believe they are perfectly good engines, with no real problems. Of course every engine can go bang the day after you buy it, but thats just luck.

    Seen a couple of posts about oil pump failure on gear drives. Is this just a few isolated issues as I understand forums can make things look worse than they are.
