i dont believe in garage queens, when i buy a car i driver her hard and often. can TTs last for 100k+ miles without too many parts failing, given proper maintenance?

vtgts300kw will become famous soon enough
they can easily. i remember reading an article about a guy from europe somewhere who had done over 120,000miles in his turbo, driving through snow and everything without a problem at all. he even leaves his car outside sitting in the snow.

What do you guys think is the reliable mileage lifespan of a stage 2 Turbo w/500+ bhp?

That would be Pierre but those were kilometers, we don´t use miles in Europe And yes, there are a lot of Turbos being driven long and hard, especially in Germany. If a car can last through 100.000 km of high-speed Autobahn driving it can last through anything.
