Default 2.5TDI Avant - Still alive

Just to prove there a still a few of these out there and working.

My 2.5TDI SE 140 6 speed Avant. Solid black (special order I think). Owned by me since 2003 (and I know both previous owners).

Purchased at 112k and now at just under 335k miles. All major mechanicals are original and untouched - testament to regular oil changes and the basic toughness of the machine. Original clutch, starter, alternator, exhaust. I did change the injector nozzles at 275k and I did have to fit a new radiator a couple of years back. It has had many brake parts and many suspension parts - ten seasons of 12 car rallies in the Dorset lanes don't help that!

VCDS only ever attached for injection timing - never thrown a fault code!

Recently passed MoT with advisories for a corroded fuel pipe (true) and sad looking CV joint gaiters. Smoke score of 0.61 on first pass. Still capable of exceeding 50mpg if I'm nice to it (rare) and has seen long trip averages over 60mpg.

It has set my expectations unreasonably high. All cars should be this good.....

Inevitably it is getting a little tatty so has been given the winter off for a bit of tidying.

It's always been a working family vehicle. Most of the pics I have of it include large objects strapped to it.....
