Yeah exactly. I bought mine without expecting to keep it after my extended warranty ran out. But this may change things.

Is the timing tensioner really that big of an issue? Even in the later model years?

I've always read that the water pump and carbon buildup were the two biggest problems surrounding the Mk6 GTI. With the water pump thing out of the way now, it's all basically down to cleaning the intake manifold occasionally (which I can live with).
