More draw of the luck than purely mileage based.
My first mk3 had 380Mm (380000km) on the clock and I scrapped it with the first set of front bearings and only tue second at the back.

Had to swap both front left and one rear on my UK Golf estate that had only 100k miles on it at the time.

Also 100k miles in Malta are a lot harder than 100k miles in Germany.
