mines got 86k, no worries apart from usual, coilpacks fans, sounds just as good as when i got it on 32k ish

i had an old mk3 vr6 when i got rid (px for the 4mo) it has 145k, i thrashed it every day, and just coil pack went on that, v6 vw engine is very strong in my opinion

It would appear that mine is barely run in with only 31k on it then? Would be interesting to see what the highest mileage V6 weve got on the forum has done. Cheers,Paul.

Currently on 66k with working fans and no coilpack issues (touches wood).  TBH if you look after these things there is no reason you cannot see hundreds of thousands of miles.  Only things to watch engine wise I suppose are chains and tensioners.  The 2.8 doesnt suffer as bad as the 2.9 for cyl 1 and 6 heat probelms.

on the trader i can see them up to 110k on the clocks but nothing beyond that as of yet.. but the people who will have driven these cars for miles on end must have deep pockets to keep on filling them up me thinks eh..

Good point, maybe by 100k these cars have ruined the average man/woman. [cry]

89k on mine... what do i win... thaere was one near mine 145k and that was 3 years ago and it was only 3/4 years old

if
there anything like vr6's they will easy do 165k no problem with
correct servicing, the engine is very understressed... the main problem
is keeping ontop of suspension wear and tear , it is the weakspot of
all mk4 golfs

Ok here goes

98896 MILES cant say much only done 13000 miles in three months since i did the conversion and BOY were they fun [:D]

What price are the coil packs as i think it is playing up????????

what are the signs of them going?

it seems to miss at low revs and when driving at normal speed and then sticking you boot down it seems to not want to go and the BANG!, it takes off like a cat with a dog up it´s butt and has done this for some time now.

any clues?

Does sound like coils packs....does yours have the multipack or single pack type of coils, Mine had the multi pack which cost me £170ish from euro car parts, easily fitted. Get it scanned with vagcom 1st to confirm thats it is the coils that are at fault.
