I know Vw says to change the timing chain and the tensioner when you hit 200000km(or about 125000 miles)...

Some of you did this?

Or the timing chain can stands up to 200000km/125000 miles???

You can check the chains with Vagcom.
Go to engine, go to mesurement blocks 207 till 211,
You can see the ofset of the chains.

I'd been wondering about this issue myself. I had heard through some source or another that the service interval was 150k miles for the timing chains. So, since I'm at around 130k, it was starting to worry me a little.

Since I saw this post, though, I figured I'd pull the values from the ECU and see what I had. I was delighted with the result:

Intake bank 1, 124 and -2 deg
Intake bank 2, 123 and -2 deg
Exhaust bank 1, 94 and -2 deg
Exhaust bank 2, 91 and +1 deg

This told me not to worry about the chains for a good long while, which was quite a relief!
