    Just have my 2004 1.9 tdi B6 for slightly over two years (almost 28 months) now and in that time I've put up 42,000 miles on it!

    I've probably spent £800 on repairs which isn't bad I suppose.

    My car needs a new timing belt soon so I intend to keep my B6 for at least another two years anyway if not 3 or 4 more years!

    so how long have you owned your B6 for and for how much longer do you intend to keep it for ?

    I've owned my 2004 1.8t(190)quattro avant for 6 years and loved every minute. As for how much longer I'll keep it,well until it not worth repairing any more.lol. Not sure how much money I've spent on it and probably would get a shock.She is now a second car so has gone from doing 20k a year to 3k at a push now.

    Too long, bought it about 7years ago with 50k and paid 10k for her, spent and absolute fortune on it and looking ti get rid now, would love another one ( B8 black edition ) but to be honest am being drawn towards Merc or even Skoda as the standard spec is far too low for a car if that value and finding one with the spec i'm after is proving a little trying to say the least, but in all honesty the B6 is a fantastic car and easily the best i have owned so far.

    9.5 years - bought in early 2005 as an ex demo with 10k on the clock. Paid £22000 I think.

    Spent - I have no idea and don't wish to add up the receipts. Between modding and stuff breaking, tyres, wheels, brakes, servicing I should think easily another £22000! if not more. I have every receipt in a file but too scared to add it up.

    She'll click over on 150,000 miles next week. so I've done 141,000 in her!

    Cheers man, I am a bellend for kissing the back of a VRS but instead of advice and resolution most people wanted to reiterate the mistake as though crashing and being at fault was a proud moment.
