First 100k cost $440 in oil.
The oil for my Jetta was $65, plus $9 filter at 8k intervals to maintain warranty. $96 was the usual charge to have it done at the dealershpi. If you want to stretch it out, you can, but then you're on your own for warranty.

I don't check this thread very often so I'm a little late to this argument but....
Factory approved interval on the TDIs was 16,000km, or at least it was on my golf. After the warranty I found I could stretch it past 30,000km but my warranty did specify 16,000km between oil and filter changes. Also, I was able to get by for 5 years never paying more than $55 for oil and $6 for a filter, making the cost to 100k = $366 in oil and filter changes.
Lastly, the timing belt bits are no more expensive for the TDI as compared to a 1.8T or 2.0L
