Might be an outlier, 2015 R with 15k miles. On the other hand, my old 2007 GTI is still driving around in Switzerland currently with 160k miles driven by the same lady I sold it to back in 2012 when I lived and worked over there.

Traded in my 2006 MKV GTI with an FSI in 2016 when I bought my MK7. It had 123k on it. While I don't know where it went, I expect the cam follower has been punched through and grenaded the engine by now.

I literally warned the buyer as much as possible, explained exactly the issue, what to do, even gave him an extra cam follower I had I think... I would change them every 15-20k mi

Mine had an APR HPFP, so it was critical to check/replace.

Yup, I was on the every-15k-interval as well haha.

Wow that is extremely low miles. I don't think I could drive it that little. When I travel for work and get home I can't wait to take the GTI for a drive.
