i barely remember driving it at all in '07
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

Your "guru" going to pay for the repairs when he's wrong? Nothing lasts forever.
