Hi there, my girlfriend has just picked up her first car, a mk5 1.6 fsi. Was wondering if i could have some information as to what to look out for on these cars and any parts due changing. Cars on 101k miles and has a full service history. Had new springs and shocks, new wheel bearing and abs sensor unit. Had a decent amount of bits done to it but if there are any parts i should keep an eye on let me know. Also i understand these cars have timing chains, are they sound or known to go wrong at all? Cheers.

Electrical system might get old in time so you can check out wires sometime.
Timing chain or belt?? If it’s a belt on your mileage your not far from a full timing belt change.
