Never stray away from the Honda-BMW only rule of thumb. Great cars. My Aunt's 98' Accord has 310,000 miles and has only replaced belts aside from regular maintenance. My dad's 318i 4spd had 359,000.

Well, I think they look better than 95% of "mods". Definitely a helluva better than non-OE wheels.

Nope. Several guys here have already passed 270k, and a few have passed 300k. My dad's 4speed 318i had 359k (weak little engine, though.).
