Default New 207 GTI Owner..I'm broken already.

Hi.
Recently purchased a 207 Gti with octane pack at 26K. 1st month, I had to have an upgraded chain tensioner from Pug @ 189 as it was sounding like a diesel on cold start up. DPF then followed so had an upgraded turbo part (79) as the pressure was too high resulting in power loss. New years eve alloy wheel fracture (244), don't recall hitting a pot but the suspension is so comically tough that this didnt suprise...And the Mrs refuses to get in it (Bonus).

I know about the oil binge but is there any other things to look out for? I love the car too much and don't want to ditch it anytime soon.

Thanks.

Poor fit if components, especially interior. Front doors poorly fitted that sag on their hinges. The 207 is probably my least favourite 07 if I'm honest (I have owned one).
