With mine being a 65 plate, do I need to have concern over my injectors? I'm on 30k miles. If mine go, would it be more reasonable to drop a 2.0 engine in there?

I guess a complaint of a 1.6 is louder than a commendable comment or two of a 1.6 as you say.

The 1.6 is like a box of chocolates... 8) unfortunately theres always one lemon. Straying away from vw here but I had a mk5 astra (bout 8 years old when I got it )and had a few people tell me they were great cars...it was right bag of s***. Spent far too much money in repairs in my years of ownership and sold it for scrap in the end. Sometimes you just get bad example.

1.6 tdi cayc engine with honeywell turbo 63 plate owner 83k on the clock remapped to 150bhp pulls and drives like the day it rolled off the production line still on original egr injectors etc and turbo and not a single problem sounds like you brought a shitttta the problem is with the bg vans british gas owned them and they get abused like an adultwork escort and do a lot of idling outside customers houses tossing there shift off so that cant be doing them much good
