Think about in europe how popular diesels are and you realize that in reality we shoukd be taking notes from the germans when it comes to diesels. The vw diesels that I have seen come through the shop at work are usually in pretty good shape. Get incredible fuel millage and with the right matinance make it to 300k regularly(I know of 20 mk 4 jettas with 250k+ that are still drivers
When you say "eurea injection" do you mean DEF? Because it doesn't take / use it.

Actuilly now that I think about it it might not. Ik my grandfathers 2013 vw passat tdi has a fill in the trunk but honestly ive never investigated into a beetle tdi before.

Im thinking that one might just have the egr and a bunch of filters on it insted.

I do know the next gen of tdi (arriving in 2014) will all have eurea injection

when you take your vw in for its next freebe service talk to the service manager. He will know whats what and usually has very good info and tips
