as others mentioned, 64k is due for a large service.

-replacement of spark plugs, air filter, pollen filter, brake fluid flush, and dsg service.

gti's are pretty solid cars, some things I can comment on:

-they burn oil, check oil level often.
-check engine lights.. fuel injectors or intake manifolds. both components have a warranty extention of 10 years/190,000kms.
- carbon build up. depending on the driving habits, some can have some serious carbon build up by 64k.
-premium fuel... a must. you'd be surprised how many cheap asses I see not putting the recommend fuel in these cars. vw's are extremely sensitive to improper fuel grades and the check engine light will appear.
