I have one with 180K. I've had to replace the normal wear parts in the
suspenstion and normal service items. Last weekend I rebuilt the heads
(valve guides, seals).
When I was in there, I could still see the original machining marks on
bearing races and cylinder walls! I expect a long life out of that engine.
This engine was known for more oil consumption than others and oil leaks
in the upper engine. Nothing major.
I've had mine for 5 years. I bought it with 100,000 miles in 1999.
After fixing some vacuum leaks and some normal maintenance things, it runs
now than when I bought it. I intend to keep it for a while. I sold my last
audi (1985 4000Q) with 315,000 miles only because I wanted a newer model
with the V6. It still ran great and used no oil.
