    With a best 60ft of 1.75 on a slower pass it can go faster!
    Ah that's awesome mate! I'm APR stage 2+ 98 file at the moment and can't fault it at all.

    190,000 still havent done timing chain yet, 2+ tune , drive it like i stole it, loves going offroad for rally fun, has been airboune, probably going to break something soon, but so far hasn't missed a beat... except for the cracking stock rims..

    probably drinks around 500ml over 5,000-10,000km, and dsg oil gets done every 30,000ish

    Had my MK6 R now for 18 Months, just about to click over 80,000kms and the only issue I have had has been to do with the carbon canister!

    I change oil every 7500km, service it on schedule and care for it well. Havent even ever had to top it up with oil and the car has ran APR Stage 1 for the past 40,000kms. Could not be happier!

    120K and the car’s still a tank. A very, very fast tank.

    Apart from the DSG cooler cracking and mixing coolant into the DSG fluid mine is still going strong at 120,000km. Has started to miss on full throttle recently so I think time to replace plugs and coils but given the current plugs went in at about 20,000km and aren't platinums and the coils have never been changed I think it's doing well.
