The quest for the highest mileage A2 and the 200K Club


What a coincidence. I regret the photo quality.

Hi All mine has just hit 266K now
Only a baby compared to some on here but yesterday she passed the 200k milestone ?View attachment 80801

All updated guys.

kp 115

A thread like this has been started before but obviously time has gone by so mileages would have increased.

I'll start the thread so that I can update the first post with the current 'winner'.

The only rules are that the car must still be on its original engine. Head work/injectors etc are fine but it must still be the original block and cylinder head.

Also, I know there would be no reason for anyone to lie but please can any claim be backed up by a photo of the speedo showing the mileage.

Current highest miler is:

Imola Yellow (TDI) at 555,555 (348,000 on original engine)

Current highest mileage on original engine

Weetank2 with 356k miles (TDI)

Hi Steve,
My current mileage as it’s back to commuting duties minus the oil leak etc.

I LOVE this thread.
Other car forums focus way too much on negative issues (although they are part of any forum)

Here we see a lot of focus on just how far a well maintained A2 can go without issues.
I remember buying a cheap A2 for my grandson a few years back. It had 230,000 miles on the clock (basically the distance from here to the moon) and it still carried on faultlessly for 3 years and 30,000 more miles (until it was damaged).

In the old days, when Skodas were not as great as they are now, there was a rumour that Skoda sales garages were clocking the mileometers FORWARDS. - just to make people think that a Skoda could go that far!!!

Sorry that i've let this thread slide a bit. All mileages and ranking now updated.

Joint gold are @Imola Yellow and @Weetank2 because Stu is still on his original engine.

Imola Yellow (TDI) at 555,555 (348,000 on original engine)

Weetank2 with 431k miles (TDI) (original engine)

Silver is - @Bawhee at 338k on what appears to be a petrol AUA engine.

Bronze is @Edwrai at 328k TDI
@Weetank2 that is seriously impressive!! Any tips for longevity beyond sticking to the service regime religiously?
