Golf MKV 1.9 TDI camshaft problem


Hi all,
Just wondering if anyone else has experienced problems with their camshaft lobes wearing to the point of needing replacement within 140,000 kms? I've always adhered to the service intervals, and have mostly used a particular VW dealershit (sic) for servicing. I've been told that the camshaft has work due to oil starvation...

Thoughts? Comments?

Cheers
