Worked fine now needs new engine

Purchased this Car with 53,000 miles on the clock. It was FSH and seemed fine. Does like its oil but for the first 5,000 miles only the door lock failed. Then the oil pressure sensor light came on and after replacing oil, oil filter, oil sensor, oil dehumidifier, clean sump, replace gauze on oil pickup pipe and oil pump it still suffers from low oil pressure, its 25% of required level.

Its a nice car to drive on the open road or around town, small engine struggles with torque at the lights but if you are looking for a nice interior and an easy car to drive then its fine apart of the engine. Reading forums oil pressure problems affect a lot of their engines and I will not be buying a VW/Audi/SEAT/Skoda in the next 5-10 years until they sort out the build quality.

Many people have had very little trouble with the 1.4 petrols but I got a lemon.
