    How do mate. There's a list as long as your arm! I'll start. I'm sure more people will come along

    1. ARB Bushes. (Crunching over speed humps)
    2. Swirl flaps Linkage
    3. Split Intercooler/ Hoses
    4. Drop Links (suspension rattle going over bumps)

    Welcome.
    I've a petrol so can't help with your query but read through the various threads in here and you'll get an idea of what to look out for in the diesel (DMF, clutch, EGR valve, swirl valves, are all good things to 'search'). This site is an excellent source.
    I'm sure someone from the CDTI owners' side will be along to give you better advice...

    Check for any vibration in the clutch as this could tell if the DMF is on its way out which is common around 60 - 90K. Check if the cambelt has been done, the book says 100K but it is advised to change it well before that. The wifes has just been done at 80K
