      2003 GLI, 24v VR6

      03' GLI, 6 Speed @ 250k KM now (155,342 Miles). Original Timing chains, oil always changed w/ LiquiMoly 5w40 with OEM filter every 5k KM. Fuel mileage isn't great, but I feel like that's just a vr6 thing! Major part replacements: Clutch, Alternator. Small almost unnoticeable oil leak around filter housing O-rings at block. Curious if this is pretty common? Other wise great reliable car. Smooth and straight on the highway!

      I love that this thread still gets some attention. It keeps going a little silent, and then gets revived. Typically, just when I feel outdated and alone in the MKIV VR6 world. Hah.

      My '04 GLI VR hit 170k at the end of last year. It has taken it quite a while to pass that mark from when it hit 165k several years ago because I have been working 100% remotely for the past 6 years. I actually killed an AGM battery in 4 years because the car just sat from July until last week with, apparently, an insufficient trickle charger, or something, after I redid all front-end suspension and most drive-train components, only to end up with a weird pull under acceleration that I just fixed because my local shop that aligned it didn't catch.

      I'm still rocking original timing chains, alternator, starter, oil filter housing, crack pipe, and non-working AC compressor. My headliner started sagging in the hot summer sun last year, and I ended up with a vac leak from the brake booster hose last week. I miss the car , so it's about to get some much needed TLC this year fixing the headliner, AC compressor, and I think I'm going to do some coolant work on it with a crack pipe t-stat replacement. My wife was commenting on how quiet it was last week when I was working on it, and aside from the Milltek catback giving a nice grumble under load, you don't really hear the thing, which I love. I keep eyeing new cars, but keep going back for rides in this thing.

      And I am still measuring between 26-29mpg (highway) depending on whether I drive conservatively, or for real fun (19mpg).

      Just crossed 170k miles, 03 GLI. I've owned it for 120k of those miles, and I don't think I'll ever get rid of it. Took it apart this week for a bunch of engine service, but this is the first time I've had to do so and still no chain noise. Keep up with those oil changes!
