I have a 2005.5 MKV BRM PKG 1 (Love the beast!)

Mileage: 227,000 (my daily)

Avg mileage: 550-600 miles

This car has almost everything original, turbo, cam, lifters. Only thing replaced was Egr cooler which was leaking last year.
I did end up putting a vr6 clutch w/g60 flywheel in it today (original dmf was ****)
Other than that, German engineering really holds together well!
Can't wait to tune it next!
These cars have a lot of potential, I'm excited! 😁

I'm the original owner of mine which still has under 95,000 miles. And it had a new DSG put in at ~57K after the flywheel broke apart and tore up the transmission. Maybe this is the wrong thread for me!

'06 Jetta 270,000 original everything except wheel bearings (too many to count) and one timing belt and water pump. I just ordered a camshaft rebuild kit OEM. Now, I hope that cures the smoke and hesitation issue at acceleration.

I have 350,000km on my BRM with similar maintenance history.
For me the hesitation was solved by the VNT stop set screw adjustment aka zip tie mod. I just actually adjusted my set screw as per a thread here?

I have a 2005.5 jetta with a BRM. It has 320k on it now. Replaced the turbo and cam shaft at 300k. The tops of the lifters where wearing through, one lobe was wearing down as a result. Clutch was replaced at 270K nothing else done except the standard timing belts and water pump changes. It burns no oil and averages 50mpg on a 25 mile highway commute. I'm hoping to make it to 450k.

There was a member on here that had 600000m on his chase/escort vehicle..I tried to buy it from him..he had these over 3 years ago..his maint. records were..5 timing belts, couple drive axles, over a hundred oil changes..1 cam and lifters i believe..he let it run during lunch..started car in morning and left it idle at lunch..ran 12 hours a day..

These cars are bullet proof, have there querks for the factory, but get 50mpg, run hundreds of thousands of miles..

I still own my 2..the dsg hass 190000m..the 2005.5 modified 5 speed has 125000m...

I am keeping them forever and still love them..You cant buy a car like this anymore..
