AudimusEd in the Norcal forum has been running the Stage III for about 30k or so on his '98, and is way over the 100k mark as well. He was featured (and won) in the European Car 1.8t challenge a few months back

Yikes. Got 156K on mine. Chipped from new. Only problems I've had were dealer ass...sociated. Oh, lost the center instrument display early on. Ya I've replaced a number of items, clutch, brakes (at 140K miles!) and have a rear wheel bearing singing a song.. Aside from that-a solid car :-)
