From personal choice you'd be happier with the 1.8 tdci.

For £5000 you'll be within range of most of the higher spec ones.

Basically with the 1.8 as long as it's been serviced on a regular schedule you'll have no worries at all.

The 1.6 has a dreaded particulate filter on the exhaust and unless you do a load of motorway or A road driving you'll be likely to have problems as it needs a regenerative cycle carried out to avoid clogging with soot and carbon.
