Cooper Diesel PSA 1.6 HDI Hesitation in low rpms

Hi everyone.

I currently own a 2008 Mini Cooper Diesel with 1.6 HDI engine from PSA with about 150k kilometers since I imported it from Belgium to Portugal.

I am experiencing some issues with my mini. For example, when I am about to enter a roundabout it hesitates in low rpms in 1st gear, also when I get out of the roundabout and I slightly press the gas pedal it hesitates for about 1 sec and then takes off like a rocket, like nothing has happend.

I did some research and a I have found quite a few people with the same issue with this engine, but no specific solutions. I heard that it could be the EGR fault, MAF sensor dirty...etc

Yesterday i checked my air filter and it was a bit dirty, so I am thinking in buying the K&N washable air filter and replace it with the existing one.
