96 2.0 TS PH1 125.000 miles, original clutch, burns NO oil.. sweet as a nut.. 130 on the clock no problem.
I'm obsessive about me fluids.. 6000 mile oil changes..fully synth.. Italian tune up once a week..

The engine went on ours at 173k miles - no warning when the end(s) went bang. It had always been serviced on time and never run (in our ownership - from 46k) low on oil.

I was not put off though - got a replacement engine with 135k of it and done 12k miles of it since - only cost 250.
