You could have problems with any engines. On this forum problems getting hugely exaggerated and it sounds like evety 1.4T will blow up.

Put in the correct oil, have the ecu updated and enjoy.

Thanks for your help again guys, really calmed my anxiety.

One last question, then I promise you won't hear anything from me until I pick it up!

I sit in traffic for a lot of my daily commute (both ways), does pulling away, or crawling put stress on the engine do you know? Anything to be concerned with?
Assuming you don't slam the accelerator below 2000rpm when crawling in traffic (obviously not) then no.

Of course, the driver info screen graph which shows petrol used per 5km in a bar chart is depressing reading when you are sitting in traffic jams. But other than that.... :)
