    depends why you are getting it built?
    smoking becasue the rings are worn is the main reason, other than that these things will do more miles than you can. I have a Golf GTi on 225k..same block as this.

    if you just get new rings, hone and refit that is your cheapest option.
    could be as little as 300, its a head off,sump off job if done in the car (not ideal as the honing process showers the crank in ****e which needs to be washed off very carefully)

    but in my opinion if you are doing that get a seperate block (shagged timing belt etc), you can get them for free. do rings, bearings all pumps and seal and drop it in.
    It is cheaper to get work done out of the car than in and for your money you will get more done and have a fresher short block. you will obviuously have to have the old block removed and new one refitted (more cost).

    Might just be because it's getting colder and things tend to sound noisy.
    Is it OK when warm?
    Maybe a good oil change with quality oil might help.

    How do you mean noisey?

    Rattley? or a deeper sound?

    A good flush and oil change will work wonders. It's what i have just done on mine and the car sounded much better after
