Touareg R5 TDI problems

Hello,

I'm going to buy an R5 TDI Touareg but I've heard that the first R5 engines had some problems. Like injectors popping out of the cylinder head etc. but a few years later, the problems have solved.
Does anyone know which model year that is? I thought it was 2005 but I'm not sure of it.
Has the Touareg others problems?

Yes I also heard from the problems with water pumps.

Here is a video from a guy who has also this problem:
The problems seem to happen more frequently with the Transporter R5 engines. Maybe because the angle which they are built in is different?
The first R5 engines are the BAC engines. But later they have made the BLK, BPD and BPE. But which is the best?
I've read that the first types of engines had only one bolt to mount the injector and the younger models have 2 bolts to mount it. I looked at the design from Elsawin but they all have just one bolt.
