I'm about to hit the big 6 digits... So far, she's eaten two clutches (not my fault, one was caused by the slave cylinder leaking hydraulic fluid), fried one coil, and wore out one water pump. Serpentine belt is next...

This weekend will bring:
80K on my car
70K on the motor.
Motor been turboed since 2006 and has had a HARD LIFE. Still rofflestomps STI's.
I'm at 82xxx and just had to replace my emissions vacuum lines and get some carbon build up cleaned out of the throttle body. joy. 80k service was a fun one too. the body creaks like crazy now... would love to get an upper rear strut tower brace. running on new tires (goodyear f1 all-seasons) and had to replace shocks... grrr. want to get cayenne break upgrades when the fronts are worn down.

oh yeah, my water pump died also. luckily it was still under certified pre-owned status... of course... all these repairs seem quite normal for a car as old as mine.

Lowest mileage? My 2003 is almost at 34k
you're obviously not having as much fun with your car as I am with my 2003
104k on mine bought with 98,500. So far I had to replace a tie rod. Currently my axles are making clunking noises in reverse when i apply the brakes, so im pretty sure they are shot.
I'm so glad i sold my 1.8t gti for this car. IMO the VR is superior.

How do I become a member of the elite 24v VR6 club?? Oh...and 105,000k but a radiator hose blew and my engine overheated and warped my head....$4,700 later and a total upper rebuild i guess you could say I reset the mileage.... And since it was all ripped apart I put Techtonics Camshafts in for some extra ponies and some torque.
I just hit 120,000 the other day. Car is in the shop for a complete front end respray and to get those pesky notches filled in the hood and bumper.
When I get it back, sideskirts go on along with about 700 dollars in new parts for maintenance.
Can't wait to hit 200,000
