I'm at 290K in the Florida.  Cylinder head was replaced under warranty back in the day, and the last 60K were done at 20PSI.

I am quite sure 3,5 million km is an unbeatable and unbelievable record.
It equals almost 120.000km each year since new.

I once had a bus that had done 2.530.000 when i sold it for 4.000£ it was on its third engine and second gearbox. It is among the top 5 busses in Norway when it comes to higest km.
One of the airport express companies in Oslo ran the same buses for 10 years, max was 1,9mil km on the same engine.
If you can prove this, i think you should contact the Stiftung Museum in Wolfsburg and ask if it is the higest number of any VW engine in history.

I think i have heard of a Volvo 240 Station wagon that was used to deliver newspapers in northern Sweden, that had done 2,7 mil km. It was on its third 2,4D engine

My 1978 LT28 2.0 petrol is at 28.000 km now.

Because it only has 5 figures on the odometer. The real figure is 328.000 km. Still going strong. Slow, but strong. :)
