Hey guys,

I got a 2006 1.9 tdi BXE Passat a couple months back and I really love the car. So much so that I’ve decided to buy another one!

The reason being that in Ireland anything after 2008 has much lower tax and is therefore more affordable to drive and I plan on holding onto the new one for a long time and doing lots of engine and cosmetic customization to it.

So I want to buy a high line model from 08-10 and was thinking of getting the 2.0l version.

My questions are:
what’s the best engine code to look out for in relation to reliability and performance?
Is 2.0 really better than 1.9?

I really want to get the best possible base that I can with the b6 before I start putting lots of money into it.
