    Just curious what mileage people are getting to before the big bills start. I have 154k (boughts it with 49k) with full service history and regular oil/filter changes as well as timing belts/water pumps as required.

    Just wondering when do the big things start to give grief i.e. turbos, clutches, injectors, drive train etc

    I have already done fuel pump, shock, engine mount, temperature sensor, power steering tensioner and am trying to determine when it becomes false economy and whether I should be looking at a B7 ....

    Thanks for any info ....

    Turbo's should be fine if serviced regularly, clutches will depend on your driving style (I think someone here has done nearly 200k on the original) and the drivetrain is pretty much bombproof.....

    You could buy a low mileage B7 that's been abused and end up spending a fortune on it.....
