I followed the manufacturer maintenance manual exactly. I changed oil every 7500 miles. This was two or three times a year in the 14 years I owned the car. This I believe was critical to its long life I leased at 2016 GTI back in Sept of 2015. Really love the car and thinking of buying it out at the end. Just wondering if anyone has hit high mileage on these cars yet and if so how does the car still run? If I do stay with the car I plan on tuning the ECU and throwing on an intake. Maybe I'll do full exhaust but that is a big MAYBE . Something many car owners can do to make their turbocharger last longer is be cautious with the boost gauges. Boost gauges indicate manifold air pressure and boost pressure in the internal combustion engine. Turbos are engine-driven air compressors that provide various degrees of boost to the engine After working your turbo out a bit (like on a spirited drive or a few hours of long highway driving), give it a bit of time to cool down before shutting off the engine. A minute or two of idling helps your oil cool the turbo (and itself). Manuel Cintron. 4. Cool It Down

GTI at 16 is just plain dangerous. I drove my 89 Mitsu Galant like a racecar when I was 16. 1.2L 4 banger never felt so fast, lol.
