Citroen C2 1.4 HDI

I'm thinking of buying the above as a 3rd car Asda hack and kid learner. It's on a 54, has done 100k with superb history and a new turbo. Does anyone know if these 1.4 HDI lumps are any good?

I think my old driving instructor in Truro is on his 3rd now. He is an independent with one car and I don't think he'd keep getting them if they were pants.

If its one of John Silvesters / Tolvaddon Driving School go for it. John really looks after/maintains his cars and I nearly bought the car I learnt to drive in a few months after I passed.

My neighbour (garage owner) - his wife and wife's mate have these and never heard them complain! Don't know what engines though - is the HDI diesel?
