146,000 and I bang the sh*t out of her. By bang I mean gears, by her I mean my car.

Still runs strong, only IDC and regular maintenance so far. Congrats.

if you dont track or do any crazy shifting i dont see why a e46 ith regular oil changes and all other fluid changes regularly done could last to 350k and plus. im sure if you give it 2 or 3 years the other thread on this with who has the highest milleage e46 some guys will reach the upper 300's
