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

Sorry @Andrew I'm not sure if you understood my question or if I cant understand your response :=)
Should I review the previous 15 pages and try and work out how many miles / year each person is doing?
Or is there a presumption that most cars have been owned for a long time by people with a consistent usage?
Having reread your post carefully now I think I see the intended question, viz, 'anybody currently doing high ANNUAL A2 mileage?'.
To get your answer it might be worth opening a thread, something like 'Who has the highest mileage between the last two MOTs?'. I would not 'win' you exceeded my annual mileage in your first 5 weeks!

Apologies, probably me reading your post too quick.

If you need that information, then yes. But what on earth is the point?
I’m just interested, are others still doing high annual mileage like me, since I’ve bought the A2 many people have been interested/ amazed that I’m doing so many miles in it, one friend said “you’ve bought a car with how many miles on it?” another said “I always fancied an A2 but they are too old now”. Be nice to have some evidence that I’m not crazy.

I’ve had my A2 for 5wks now and have done 3500miles, and expect to do another 1k/wk for the next 5 wk’s, are you guys hitting big lifetime mileages still clocking high yearly miles now?
Hi robthebank,
We’re doing approximately 900 miles per week & have been since purchase in 2015
Currently on 214121 & rising with only a period off road following a cambelt failure .
Regards
Keith

We’ve put 1100 miles on our “new” A2 in the first couple of weeks - one of the reasons we got it is to cover as many of miles in it as possible. Can’t be many 15+ year old cars that are still daily drivers that do as many miles as these A2s :)

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)

I'm sure there is higher out there so please post up.
