Bought mine on 44k and its now on 137k and been great, slapped a remap on it straight away and the car has always delivered.

Also your thing on "Is there anything else one can do" is that to improve power? Yes I would look at getting a performance exhaust and improved induction for the car along with a remap. You can do much more on this platform but really depends how far you want to go.
I will be getting a d5 so do you know which sensors I could replace on it similar to what was spoken about the t5?

Yes remap at least I'm going to do

So is that when the engine has done high mileage that it will have less power and car will not be as fast anymore? What about age of the engine?

Ah right tbh 137k for a d5 is really not that much at all. I wouldnt worry too much about sensors and just when and if the timing belt is fue as well as the clutch. Other than that should go like the wind and a remap would be awesome on it!

How come you decided on a D5.

The timing belt has been done I need to have a proper look through all the invoices and papers.. not sure about clutch..

Yes i plan to remap it aswell

I decided d5 because one came up and they dont come up much especially not at the price I want to pay and the t5 is even more expensive and rare and also the d5 is cheaper to run and tax so went for the d5
