I had a mk5 gti in 2011 for a couple years and loved it.great fun to drive and I never had any issues but only did about 20 k in 2 years.
bought the car on around 50k and took it up to 70k.

They do drink oil,seemed to be topping it up every couple months (castrol edge I think)

They do make a horrible ticking sound on idle, sounds louder obviously with the bonnet up.

Only ever ran it on super unleaded which is whats recommended on the filler flap

and I remember reading something about fuel pump cam issue fault.

overall I loved it and preferred it to my mk4 R32. I wouldn't be surprised to be behind the wheel of an edition 30 one day.

My Octavia vRS Mk2 TFSI was probably the best car I've owned (maybe my new Superb is superior, but it was fantastic nevertheless).

I did over 100k in it and it never let me down aside from the ABS pump failing. It sprung a warning light once, but a blast with an air line on a gauze cleaned it up and all was good again. I cannot recommend the TFSI enough. Plus they sound great. Lovely and gruff.
