    On Saturday 30th June, with the car 10 years and 12 days old, it finally reached 200,000 miles. :eek::D

    I did actually drive around the village for a mile or so as my daughter wanted to watch the odometer tick over - and of course so we could stop to take the obligatory photo!

    Full ownership thread in due course :cool:

    Well done! A mate of mine clocked up 325k miles on his BMW K100 motorcycle over a period of 13 years.
    That was on the original engine and transmission - only needed a couple of replacement clutches. They don't make them like that any more.

    Cheers chaps, (y)

    Car is still working, much to my wife's displeasure. There are one or two minor niggles that I have yet to fix, can't really grumble I suppose.

    Interesting to know that my Dad's car has a quarter of the mileage, a few years older but is falling to bits! He hardly uses it.

    @a.s.uk Thanks Al, that's probably why it's still going strong :)

    Congratulations. Mine ticked 90k this morning; positively youthful in comparison but a big number for me. Looking forward to running mine well into the 100k territory.

    Words I'm sure few men hear from their wives.......! :whistle::ROFLMAO:
