Woohoo just rolled 150,000 miles today

I'm excited I just rolled 150,000 miles this morning and my xi still drives like new. I'm hoping to get 250,000 miles out of it .

216k miles. Just did the starter (original), fuel pump (original, still going strong, but I was getting paranoid), and fuel filter. I want mine to make it to 400k+ and am maintaining it to do so.

Runs perfectly, gets 28MPG freeway, 22-23 around town on 18" M3 wheels.

Bought 'er off of here with 196k miles. Previous owner did the sunroof, oil filter housing gasket, replacement rear springs, wheel bearings (2) and brakes.

I did Bilstein HDs, a strut tower bar, H&R RSB, fixed a transfer case leak, CCV with hoses, rebuilt Vanos (installed by Dr. Vanos himself in Round Rock, TX) with new VCG and new valve cover, rear subframe bushing, M3 wheels repaired/redone in gunmetal, new headlight covers/bulbs with LEDs all around (with resistors), and 2 window regulators. And a Dynavin. And some professional leather restoration. And a UUC short throw. And Clutch Delay Valve Delete. And transfer case/diff oil all replaced with appropriate RedLine Fluids.

I can't say the car's been fine without maintenance or without upgrades, but I'm down to just replacing the front axles (next month) and she should be good to go for a long time to come. Take care of the car, and it'll last a good long while. I've got a local indy who does great work for reasonable prices who's stated after looking at the top end of the motor and driving it around, that it performs and mechanically is on-par with a car with 80k on it!

I put one of your aluminum pulleys on a Stewart water pump when I did my cooling system overhaul at 206k miles.

Overkill, maybe... But it's all working well.

Nice! Overkill is always a good thing when it comes to the cooling system!

My Ride: 04 330xi
build date 03/04, currently at 222,436 miles. Runs great, a few hiccups, but nothing too crazy. Love her so much, she's getting new legs and her style 193's refinished next week hopefully (tired of silver). Been good to me, except the time she demanded that I put in a new alternator in a parking lot while it was 20 degrees outside...
