    Hey guys, thought it would be interesting to see what mileage others have reached in their 2.0 TDI engines. I'm currently on 175,250 miles and I have an '06 A3 Sportback 2.0 TDI 140 six speed manual!

    Engines still pulls strong. Recently fitted Bilstein B8 shocks, H&R 35mm lowering springs and 18 inch OEM Ronal S-line alloys. Although I'm thinking of going back to the 16 inch alloys that came with my car to improve handling!

    Next mod is remap...looking to take my car over 200k...fingers crossed

    Good to hear Qasim. What is your oil change regiment like? Do you use VW 507 00 spec or 505 01?

    I've only had the car for like 6 weeks. But I changed the oil in my 3rd week. Depends on how many miles I do in my first year.
    Umm 5W-40 oil I think it is.
    Sorry not familar with them spec numbers

    Mine is currently has 132k on the clock but looking in the DVLA for previous MOT's it was clocked back 60k so unsure if it still has the original engine ! If it does I'm not far off 200k !! Idle is a bit funny on cold (misses) and I'm not sure why ! But other than that it still goes strong with a remap, blew out 5th and 6th gear on the motorway so gearbox replaced and new turbo fitted

    Anything after 150k on an existing turbo and it's like a 20yr old cat. Any fright and it will sh1t itself and die..

    Not necessarily...like everything else it depends on how well it's been looked after.

    I'm just over 110,000...

    Our BKD Sline has managed 111,000 so just a walk in the park compared to you others. Had a new turbo at 100,000 miles but that's it, no other problems.
    Have any of you high mileage boys had oil pump problems?

    Swapped the hex drive in mine at last oil change...it was pretty bad to be honest but never had any oil pressure issues.

    Bit of a gamble on how long it will last I guess.

    This is of course why new car sales are dropping, 10 years 100k is really nothing now
    My S3 which i bought new in 2011 has done 95k, goes like stink and last dyno run did 381bhp, its still my new cart and i cant think of any good reason to spend £40k replacing it with a slower std 8V

    Agree, warm up and bigger IC is a must for Tuned S3..... diesels have longevity built in :).

    116,000 here. Purchased as a cat-D at 55,000ish at £4k less than what the previous owner had purchased it for, had one mechanic change the oil filter incorrectly causing oil to leak out all over the engine causing the cambelt to snap and that was 4 years ago. He was nice enough to repair the engine.

    Wear and tear only raring its ugly head around 100k - changes include light bulbs/wheel bearing/brakes/CV boots (outer). 'tweaks': egr/dpf/exhaust/ecu remap

    Currently running at 190bhp/309ft/lb and I get around 500 miles on a tank (mainly motorway miles). I'm covering around 16,000miles per year

    At a cross road, thinking about upgrading the turbo/clutch (SRE performance) etc and bring the car to 250bhp and still enjoy the good fuel economy or look to the mid-range performance cars such as the S1 .........hmm.

    you not had the joy of having to replace the N/S suspension top mount yet.

    this would be a good poll style question for mileages

    I've only had to replace the EGR cooler, so far. Clutch + Turbo remain strong

    Hi newbie here, just my daily 04 TDI s-tronic BKD 195.000. Had it mot’d yesterday. Bought it 4 years ago as a stop gap, was not going to keep it long but it is so good on fuel and drives reasonably well for a banger lol
