This time he's gone for a 1.2tsi petrol.
my friend has a golf 1.6 TDI CR as a company car (2010 model) and does 25000 miles a year (seriously) and she had DPF issues twice, and my other mate has an audi A1 with the same engine and he needed a DPF clean after 10k - could be VW's DPFs?
i must admit my dad has a volvo V50 1.6 driveE (ford engine) with a DPF and drives hardly any miles in it - and he's not had a peep of trouble after nearly 3 years now
