10k in a little over 6 months.
I'm at 108,000 miles. Bought it with 60,000 just about 2 years ago. I changed schools this semester, so I drive 200 miles less a week now. My VR6 still runs like brand new. She loves to rev Though I am on my 3rd set of tires in 2 year and the tires were new when I bought it, thats what I get for buying sticky summer tires.
2008 VW R32 #587
Gone: 2002.5 VW GTI 24v VR6 - 180k+ miles
*My other car is a 1985 Chevy C10* 305 Bowtie Overdrives 700r4 3.08 - Ssslllooowww but sexy!
81,600....Put about 20-24K a year on it since I got it. Has yet to burn or lose a drop of 0W-40 Mobil 1, but the rest of the car is due for attention. I was going to move on, but there is nothing being made right now that interests me enough to up my car payment...so, I bought suspension, exhaust, and a bunch of maintenaince parts. Great to see one over 300K with that little maintenance!
173,000 Just replaced brakes, I did Bilsteins all the way around a few months back. Three coils just went last week. Replace plugs every 80K. Replaced serp. belt and tensioner a few months ago, along with the battery. Pretty much basic routine stuff, after replacing the plugs and bad coils; I'm getting 26 mpg. Not bad for a 5 yr. old chipped VW.
i just hit 400 miles today! .. 60,800 on the car though

I was told by my VW guru, that it's not necessary on the 24v motor. He said they would last the car's lifetime...
Your "guru" going to pay for the repairs when he's wrong? Nothing lasts forever.
Bought in July '06 with 23k miles. Now have 55k miles, but plan on driving ALOT less this year.
A week after I bought it:
current: '11 bmw 335i e90 m-sport
'09 vw cc vr6 4motion
'04 vw jetta gli vr6
'01 vw jetta 1.8t wolfsburg edition
Got 142000 on mine.
Since I bought it a year ago Ive done this lot:
New rear calipers
New pads all round
New coil pack
Poly wishbone bushes (all of them)
Poly ARB bushes
New shocks all round
Its awaiting a new aircon compressor and fan control unit which are both sat in my garage ready.
I also added some Santa Monica's in anthracite with Goodyear Eagle F1's. Trying to keep OE+
Drives quite well now
