Wow, my last major tune-up was at 100,000 miles. This service included: Oil change (Mobil Delvac-1) Oil filter change (Mahle) Air filter change (Mahle) Cabin air filter change (ACM) Fuel filter change (Bosch) Timing belt change (Continental) Timing belt tensioner change (Lemforder) Accessory drive belt change (Continental) Brake fluid flush (Castrol GT LMA) Tire rotation Brake component inspection (mic rotors, eyeball pad material) That was enough! Those German parts are pricey.

Very thorough. You must have a Diesel, as I see no mention of spark plugs. Also, should you not have installed a new water pump with that new timing belt?

Yes, I drive a VW TDI Golf. My water pump showed no signs of seepage and it has absolutely no resistance to turning so I'm going to let it go to the next belt interval. I have the 80,000 mile belt but I still change them prematurely. I actually love to tinker with German cars and the TDI is quite a challenge. The next timing belt change will be done in the 150,000 to 170,000 mile range and it will be a expensive maintenance event. I'm going to replace the water pump and all of the timing belt rollers. I am entertaining the thought of removing the engine/transmission assembly and replacing the clutch components at this interval also. So far I seem to have gotten a handle on the intake manifold soot problem but the intercooler still likes to be drained occasionally. This little car has its squeeks and rattles but it is among only two cars that I have actually loved in my car ownership lifetime. My first love was my 1985 Honda Accord hatchback which was simply a amazing machine. The seats wore completely out and the rubber trim on the windows had long since deteriorated but we still had a strong relationship. The Volkswagen after 6 years has worn much much better in these areas than the Honda did but it benefits from better materials and more durable components than were likely used in the 1980's.

Hmm.... before I came to LSU: Chevron Delo (now using M1 0w40) Kolak Ignition Kit (Autolite Platinums, Magnecor 8.5mm plug wires, MSD Blaster Coil, brass tipped rotor and cap) Tranny fluid and filter (ATF+3) Rear end fluid change (Royal Purple) Reman. Power steering pump (i broke the reservior and it cost as much as a reman. pump) New brakes with new fluid, front and rear disks. Meguires 3 step wax. During X-mas break (5000 miles later): New metal (OEM was plastic) radiator Magnaflow exhaust system Mobil 1 0w40 w/Wix filter (4300 miles into a 7.5K interval) Plans for the summer: New tires New control arm bushings and maybe new springs, if the squeaking continues.
