Just sold my commuter '01 225 (AMU Motor) to a friend, has 120k and running strong. If you take care of the motor with frequent oil changes and good oil the Long block will last forever. Mine was a Stg2+ Frankenturbo for at least the last 30k and no signs of slowing down.
Timing belts are recommended every 80k but do it at 60k intervals (+tensioner & waterpump) just to be sure. My stock Turbo (K04 on the 225, K03 on the 180bhp), started getting shaft play around 90k, but I had been running Stg2 so probably spinning it a little faster than it should have for longevity. Frankenturbo was cheaper than replacing the K04 and more performance. Suspension bushing wear like any Audi but the TT shares the front suspension with the Golf, lots of choices. I did Koni Coilovers and if lowering the TT you need Camber correction front & rear. Instrument cluster LED back lighting is an issue but there are a couple of repair places (www.modulemasters.com), had mine done, great work. Service the rear Haldex regularly, not really a Quattro but it’s like a Volvo AWD even though they call it Quattro, the car is FWD until it senses a slip then transfers power to the rear. PM me if you’ve got any questions, I kind of regret getting rid of mine but I’ve got too many vehicles.
