    I have both a 2013 Mk7 1.6TDI Eur 5 and a 2016 Mk7 1.6TDI Eur6. Neither of these was affected by the emissions update. I live in a rural area and do not do a high mileage. The 2016 has done 23K miles to date and I have had no problem with EGR or DPF. The 2016 (Eur6) has a more complex EGR system with both a high pressure and low pressure EGR. The 2013 (Eur 5) has only a low pressure EGR and I have not had any problem with it either (up to 30K miles). The exhaust noise (in the car) at revs in low gear is noticeably more raucous in the Eur6, presumably due to the high pressure EGR and noise coming back out of the air intake. I did not really intend to keep both of these cars as long I have but because of the low mileage I have kept them and have had no problems with them. Because they were Eur 5 and Eur 6 when first registered I do not have to pay road tax on either of them (for the life of the car). This has contributed to my decision to keep them. Not necessarily because of the amount of money involved but it was a rare thing to get a gift from Gordon Brown (then chancellor). Neither of them uses Ad-Blue. Because the engines and car are small the emission limits can be met without the need for it. I am very content with both cars.

    Thanks for the detailed reply on this, I used to be on this site quite a lot, it seems quiet of late. I just wanted to see what peopleís thoughts were as vw have had a lot of bad press over the last few years. The last thing I wanted to do was buy a lemon.

    The earlier ones, the EA189 series we a joke for injector, EGR, turbo, clutch/flywheel etc problems but the later EA288 revision seems less painful so far. I was walking back from the MOT station this morning and a 13 plate Octavia 1.6TDI drove past me and I could tell the emissions recall had been done, it sounded awful! If you do get an EGR/DPF problem with the it is a right big odd looking lump strapped to the back of the engine.
