Which 4 cylinder?

My daughter has finally seen the light and is ditching her fabia vrs diesel
She wants an E90 or 91 circa 2006ish. Her budget is only about 2k so wonít be buying anything amazing spec wise but sheís not that bothered. Just wants something clean and reliable. Sheís asked me whether she should get a diesel or petrol. As I donít know much about the 4 pots I thought Iíd ask your opinions. Iíve heard some of them are troublesome but I canít remember which.
Thanks.

Get a late 2006 with the M47 diesel engine. Remove swirl flaps if they haven't been done already. Make sure it's got a full service history with bills to back up the stamps in the book. Once purchased ensure oil and filters are changed every 10k and brake fluid every other year. Job done!
The problematic engine is the N47 engine that was introduced in 2007 and these suffer with timing chain failure.
