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!
