I had to think on this one:

timing belt and tensioner (once)
spark plugs twice
front brake pads and rotors once - still good shape!
rear pads and rotors once
floor mats
Plastic cover on bottom front (Hooked on a stump on my Xmas tree farm - Doh!)
Two vacuum hoses - Thanks Vag-Com! Dealer took Mass Air Sensor back.....
Four daytime running lights
License Plate lites once
Both tail lites once
Temp Sensor (For dash gauge)
Windshield - BIG rock on I80
All Struts - Bildstein HD's
Both Lower COntrol Arms - Volkswagon covered at 70k
One upper control arm - 110k
Lots of oil and filters
Need the gasket set soon (Smell buring oil occasionally)
4th set of tires (Love the MVX4+ Energy but have opted to BFGoodrich for tread-life and 1/2 price)

I think that's about it! Not as reliable as the '85 Diesel Jetta but much better than '91 Passat!
