The beast just rolled 250,000 miles this morning. I bought it in early 98 as a lease forfeit with 32k on the odometer. The only problem I have ever had was the PCV boot failed on the rear of the manifold causing lean codes. Two years ago, when Bianca (yes, I name my cars) hit 100,000 miles with not a single mechanical problem, I revised my goal to 250,000 miles

Mine has 158,000 miles on it ? Of course its all highway mileage!. The only problem so far has been that stupid EWS problem but should have that fixed pretty quick . I love my car. I have turned wrenches for over 25 yrs now on various models. And I still see that BMW's are still being service and run smoothly with 275,000 to 315,000 miles on them. They dont smoke and the fire as soon as you hit the key...Impressive!!! says alot about the quality that BMW puts into a car. Yep! they can be a pain but when they are right? Hard car to beat!
