Mr McMoonter, if I had known I would have taxied you in a similar Passat to your new car and stocked you up with a decent mug of coffee for your big journey.
Bought mine new, well a garage registered one with 800 miles on the clock in 2003. It was supposed to do 3 years as mine car and then become the family/wife's car. However 11 years later I am unwilling to let it go.
Up to 90k I just replaced pads and wiper blades and the cam belt, then front discs at 90k. It now now has 145 and was about to sell it again but my son said he would like it in a year or two so even though it goes well it was getting a little tired (looks great) so we thought a re-fresh would help. So new discs, same on the back, 312s now on the front, new struts and springs (went for B12s - same height and stiffness but better damping and not much more than org Vw) new intercooler, egr valve and ever important cam belt. We bought all the parts, all OE kit (but B12s), if you shop around it can be bought upto 50% off. Only giving this list as I reckon most this mileage will be tired in those areas. Told turbo and clutch can go from around this mileage but can also last to 200k plus.
Ours has a new lease of life, doesn't wallow, corners damn flat but Sports are low and you have to be carefully around speed bumps. Goes surprisingly quick, (quicker than a friends A6 V6 tdi) I think a lot of the 130s, especially if the cooler, pipe work and egr valve are good, put out a touch more than 130 - and all around 50mpg if keeping progress and no worse than 42 if rapid.
Pretty amazing around cars !
