Who has the highest mileage on their 2012-2013 Golf R?

High mileage. ROFL, you guys are mostly barely past warranty, just broke in the engine.

If you worry about a drivetrain at under 100K, either you worry too much or that drivetrain is garbage

Just hit 48k, stage 2+ still on stock clutch. Convert cam follower to roller mod and been running great for the last 10k miles.

Yesterday dipstick broke on me when checking the oil. Thinking about ordering ECS billet stick to avoid oem one breaking on me again.

I purchased my R in may at 118k. Got a clean bill of health from 2 different shops but I've been getting a "small leak detected" code which I'm thinking is maybe EVAP related after doing some research. Going to replace the Purge valve and see what happens there.

I'd like to go Stage 1 tune in the near future. At this high mileage I just want to make sure I prepare for that properly. What would you high mileage guys recommend for points to check/reinforce before going Stage 1 on a higher mileage R? Thanks in advanced

I'm at 118k right now, 13 Golf R. Got the car with 103k, all services were done by a dealer before I bought it. Currently Unitronic stage 2, dp and intake. Only issue I notice is that in 6th gear the clutch will slip a bit if I get on it at highway speeds to pass. Still stock clutch witch is surprising it lasted this long. Have a new clutch to put in when I get the time. Tune definitely help the milage and driveability of the car. Hope that helps
