Tips to keep them good.. Use them, they don't like sitting around.

And that's a fact. When I was doing 35k a year, all I had to do was change the tyres. Now I do around 2k, and there's always some grumble or shudder from the engine bay.

Well, thought I'd see how everyone got on in the last couple of years.
Me? ASV Tdi, 260,000 ish,
Original cluch & flywheel just croaked, cambelts every 80 to 90k ish, oil & filter every 8k, one front bearing, several driveshaft boots, two hundred door lock modules, half a hundredweight of butyl mastic, couple of pounds of R134a, idler pulley, two alternator freewheels, steering rack, front wishbone bushes, seized rear wiper. Radio smashed to bits with 2Lb lumphammer. Lego pump impeller slipped & slung away. Suspension redone with Sachs dampers & lemforder bushes. Half a gallon of flea killer.
Oil consumption? Almost nil, Still averaging 50mpg, so has been a good car.
