130,000 here and cam and lifter gone. i ordered a stock replacement kit but im just not sure if im gonna stay in this rat race or trade the car. colt and franko, both are good cams but i dont think its gonna matter because its a half a$$ design from vw and until you add wider lobes your gonna be back in the same boat. i was advised that i needed to use the 40w oil instead of the 30w oil to prevent this from happening again. REALLY,,COME ON,,REALLY,, i've been in the service field all my life and it amazes me at what companys can blame when they know they screwed up. anyway i will use 30w vw approved oil seeing that i have bought about 10 cases and i WILL add lucas oil treatment on every oil change. lucas is a very hi grade synthetic lube and if i would have followed my first instinct instead of listening to vw i might not be replacing it as soon.
