Very happy to now be part of the 200k club on this fine sunny day the little A2 strolled through the milestone mileage and is running so strong, probably one of the finest cars I have ever owned 😁
What engine is it? Just so I can update the list.

Good afternoon all! Alison has 223,898 miles on her clock! I got her in 2014 with 124,000 miles... She doesn't use oil and still returns 60.1MPG...

I do my best to look after her. Each year, her interior is "Deep Cleaned" with a Rug Doctor thingy...

The wheel arches are included in the weekly clean.

She isn't perfect. Each scrape and bump tells a story, though I'm not part of those stories! 😁

Mechanical sympathy has a huge impact on longevity.
I'm always happy to share the A2 experience with Significant Others and Friends. One thing I always do; and insist when others drive Alison is 2 minutes of idling before and after a drive, so as to help Alison's Turbo. I also ensure Alison is fully warmed up before driving enthusiastically... 👍😊

I had 272,200 miles from a clutch on the TDI A2, release bearing failure necessitated a clutch change, the spinner still had 0.6mm left to the rivets and the new LUK clutch (same as the original) only had 1.6mm, so around another 100,000 miles was left on the spinner
keep driving it like you have been

My A2 just passed 150k miles, I got it in March only, feel like its a lot And I worry soon the engine will give up..but seeing those mileages makes it like there's a plenty of life in the engine and the car yay :)
