just changed my golf. old one had 47k on the clock.

at what mileage do you reckon you need to get rid? 60k or can it do more?

These engines need at least 60k miles to loosen up. My MKII ran best after 100k; sold it at 205K - it was just starting to use oil. I've been driving VWs for 15 years. It's not a Ford or Vauxhall.

RSD have a Seat Alhambra (sp?) with 360k on the clock and running like new.

A good example. These motors last so in my opinion are great value for money if you keep it for a long time. After a few years you will notice that Fords/Vauxhalls are looking tired while the Golf just shrugs off the miles. Surely this is one of the big plus points of owning a quality car. A 10 year old golf looks like a 3 year old Ford!
