  1. Do you have an actual record for your maintenance for the last 20 years?
  2. Does that include tires? ($1,974.76 of that total is just tires)
  3. How many miles per year? (We averaged 24K a year with just that TDI)

And the other important consideration - by your own admission you skipped scheduled maintenance. $2,261.67 of that total is timing belts - which you decided not to do - and lucked out.
