I'm looking at on 09 GTI with 122,000 miles. I saw some postings about high mileage GTI's with transmission problems. What can you tell me?

I just broke 100k on my 09 gti. It has the newer tsi engine and the dsg transmission. I drive roughly 50k miles a year and am wondering on the reliability of my car, any maintenence, and any components I should just fix now before they totally malfunction and become bigger problems. Thanks!

This noise is not consistant. It sounds like something is not being lubricated in the transmission. Most likely it occurs when the car is cold. VW wants $89.00 to diagnose the problem. Thanks.
