I don't think that 300K is out of the question at all.  200K is  very good
odds, even for a turbo car.

Hay, this can be fun!  Paul and others-

how high of mileage on a ' 82 4000S DIESEL( the Audi/VW 1.6L 4L). 
Which I was told was made by Audi for VW.  I believe IMHO that 165K is
a start, which I have.  But, what has others have or seen, for DIESELS.  

BTW-  Has anyone replaced their 1982 or newer oil pressure system.  I
had the unfortunate experience with it going off at the engine shift
points.  I changed the oil and that stopped it for a while, but after a week 
the idiot light and buzzer would go off after the engine got warm.  So, I
went to my VW dealer, No Audi dealer in Cedar Rapids, and Iowa City is
just far enough that I didn't want to push my car there, literally.  The
dealer changed the oil again and found that the sensor was irregular. 
They replaced it, and I have been okay for about 4 weeks now.

Anyhow happy traveling
