This isn't looking too good. It seems that almost everyone is doing a cam at or before 200k miles!!!

234K here. Replaced the cam at 92k. Transferred egr and related hardware to the scrapyard at around 120k. I replaced original clutch at 172K and replaced the clutch again at 229K due to premature pressure plate failure. now only if I could find a cheap solution to my failed turbo actuator.

265K miles on my 2006 Jetta TDI.

Replaced DMF at 122K, cam at 182K, turbo at 253K, EGR cooler somewhere around 215K.

Rocketchip RC1+ installed at ~200K
The car runs strong and fuel mileage is trending upward around 42 MPG.

Now I just need to install the heated seats that I bought last winter.

I have a turbo actuator for sale in the Private TDI items for sale forum:

Historically, most were replaced before 100K. I'm guessing many of those folks already parted with their A5, so posts in this tread may be skewed by second owners. And the minority, such as myself, who were fortunate to last until the 200K TB interval.

Default mileage in 2005. 5 Jetta TDI

I have 443,000 miles; new cam at 334,000 miles with flywheel change also; otherwise driveline is original. No oil consumption, attribute longevity to frequent ( 3500 mile) oil changes, careful initial engine break in, very conservative driving habits. I consider this the best diesel car I have owned even though a 1986 Mercedes diesel had 527,000 miles (original unrepaird engine) before I sold it.

my 06 has 189,XXX and I have owned it since 150k and 3 years ago(my Harley gets all the summer miles). According to the car fax it had a new clutch at 80k, I replaced all 4 hub assemblies between 160k and 175k. I just put a new 3" MBRP cat back exhaust on it due to the old pipe rusting off. I run Rotella T6 oil and Mann filters every 4k miles. I was also told it has a Rocket Chip tune on it but cannot verify that as of yet.
