    Is 120k miles on a 2000 S3 considered high mileage?

    What are the 210bhp early 20vts good for mileage wise?

    Car is standard and has fsh, i was looking to have it jabba mapped. Reckon she will take it with 120k?

    Cheers :racer:

    my 1.8T agu kicks out 240bhp and is currently about to clock over 180k, still going perfectly. At it's MOT a few weeks ago all the emissions were very low indeed.

    I'd say the engines are good for 200k easily. However, I wouldn't be so sure about the gearbox. Mine broke 2 boxes before it was even remapped!

    My 52 plate Bam is on 121k now, as long as there looked after they see upto 200k with ease.

    I think you are right. I'm not driving it nearly as much these days.

    Car will be fine mate, even with the remap you will be ok...might have to change a few bits afterwards eg coilpacks, but nothing major....
