I saw a clean passat 1.8 last week with 256k on the clock, it was a taxi and on its second clutch, have to admit the suspension felt like it had done every mile, and the bloke was quite proud of it

I haven't anything with starship miles but putting miles on can be done easily....

10 years ago I was working a long way from home....was there at 8am every day - back home at 7.30pm in the evening.....supposed to be 5 weeks turned into 5 months.

Had my car serviced 3 times in that period!

One week, I blew the head gasket.....i still drove it but it was using more water than fuel.

A Fiat Tipo 1.6.

Took the head off and did the gasket set on the evening after work - was done by midnight and was driving it next day.

I guess it was the easiest one i ever did!

Wretched crap build quality.....only had 28k on it, and was only 3 years old!

I can only muster 98,250 on my 2002 Golf. Did go in a taxi in Wilmslow once which was a Passat with what I am certain said 303,000 mls on the clock - that is impressive. Certiainly cheered me up as I had just bought the Golf with 90K on it.

My mileage is clocking up at the rate of 8,000 mls in 3 mths at the moment, with every chance of doubling that soon!

There is a Skoda Octavia around here with 320,000 miles on it...its only a 2001 I think? Pretty good going. I know that Bora V5 has about 130,000 miles on his car but hes not around anymore

Well my mileage is nowhere near some of these, but I have done 10500 in my Mk5 GTTDI since 1st September, and my Bora had 75k on it, and was just under 2 years old when I got the Mk5.

Just when I thought I'd have the top spot lol! [:D] I've got just under 160K on the clock on my Golf TDi, still goin strong. Had to replace the battery a couple of weeks ago, but thats about it apart frm all the common stuff like maf, door lock modules etc

We had up until 6 months ago a Mark II Golf CL Diesel Turbo (F - 1988) if finally gave up the ghost with 285k miles on it. The only thing that ever failed was a water pump. No problems with the Mark IV 1.8T at the moment but on reading articles I would be very surprised if it lasted above 150K without anything serious failing me.

Mark II was excellent apart from the lack of power steering.
