I have 2006 VW Jetta 1.9 TDI engine code BRM. I wanted to know if anyone has problems with camshaft or lifter follower wear?

Very common problem, I had my cams and lifters replaced 40,000 miles ago, and removed my valve cover a few days ago, already showing signs of significant wear. I'm vey displeased with the design. Its very important to use the correct oil, my preference is 5w 40 synthetic, keeps cams lubricated better than 30 weight.
