Still got my old Golf Mk4 1.8T Gti - 1999 plate - 138,878 on the clock and still running beautifully!:happy:

The 56-plate A3 has 59989 miles and going great too....:thumbsup:

I hope your right because at this rate i could do that in under two years, not even enough time to pay off the finance :ermm:

Bought at 49k now on 161k still running smooth although did need a new clutch at 120k and it does somewhat bellow out smoke when flooring it. Starts on the button when cold (warm takes a few revolutions before it catches) But other than that it still seems rock solid.

Brand new 7 miles on it, got it end of June. Now got 3100 miles on it.

How did I justify such an expensive car to not drive it ?

Ho Ho.....not quite what it seems....did 76K in first three years March 1999 -March 2002 and then 68K since.....

Currently doing about 18K per annum at the mo. Yep not a lot I guess compared to you but then again I don't need to do the miles so much anymore. Just enjoy the driving now.

A3 2.0 tdi BKD 05 - 229K (first turbo replaced @ 130K, second turbo replaced 4 weeks ago at 225K), Clutch/dual mass flywheel replaced @180k) Still on original wheel bearings all round.
Purchased 2006 with 22k, owned for just over 200k / 6 years and been a great workhorse. I've change the oil every 12K or so

Does Aberdeen to Norwich return most weeks since @ 1200 miles.

The engine is getting a bit noisy so plan to change it out shortly.

Yeah all sweet, I do take it fairly easy most of the time though... Turbo and Clutch/Flywheel haven't been replaced to my knowledge so unsure how long they would last if I hammered it constantly!
