Just passed 400k miles in my 2001 Jetta TDI. I purchased in 2004 with 40k miles. Still has original clutch, turbo, injectors, IP, cam, wheel bearings etc. Drive 100+ miles per day. It's still getting 50mpg. Glow plugs haven't worked in years but I haven't had any problems starting in the winter. It's been in a semi heated garage most of it's life.

Hoping to get 500k out of her.

I'm at 404,000 miles, head gasket went. Was over pressuring coolant bowl .
Finally replaced head that only had 3 gp's as the 4th snapped 250,000 miles ago, new timing belt kit with all new rollers, metal WP, new shock dampener for serpentine belt and a new radiator as it was starting to leak.
Also replaced injectors with sprint 520's , my spare set.

On an impressive note, at this mileage I still have the original crosshatch marks on all four cylinder walls, I was quite impressed!
