Why do you need a new engine?

Is it shot?

<-------I think I have the lowest!

Since my new 330ci ZHP is on the boat over from Germany, I'm sure it only a couple of miles on it.

My Ride: '04 325i - '08 C300
I have 82,000 on my '04 325i. Bought it brand new in December of 2003. Can anyone beat that?

You'd never think that it'll come in handy for anything. Untill the DMV decided to suspend my license for six months & to put me on a 1 yr probation (5 points in 1 year). {California Vehicle Code Section 12810.5(a)}. So I researched it and found that the same CVC Section also states the following: In applying this subdivision to a driver, if the person requests and appears at a hearing conducted by the department, the department shall give due consideration to the amount of use or mileage traveled in the operation of a motor vehicle.

So I requested a hearing, took a copy of my last Service Repair Order... &... Baddabing... Baddaboom... I got my license back. No suspension, but they kept me on probation for 1 year.

So now I say: "The vehicle code section that taketh away, can also giveth right back."

Just over 5,000 per month. That's insane. The most mileage put on in a short span of anybody I know personally is about 10,000 in the past four, or 2500/month. I managed to do something close to that in the fall of 03', though it's been slow going since.

Well I'm close, over 190k on a 2000 model.

I think you've got me confused with the other guy. My car is a 2000 with 57,000 miles.

Actually it's I that almost lost my license. (and trust me, I am neither bragging about that nor am I bragging about the # of miles I have).

You called it a "loophole". I don't know if that is a good way to describe it, because it makes a whole lot of sense. I mean no one drives the speed limit. Right? But with me driving 4 to five times the amount of miles as the avg driver, my odds of getting caught are just as many times higher than those of the avg driver.
You asked me how I managed to put that many miles on my '04. Well, I am a Regional Rep for a company in Southern California. I drive about 70 miles each way to and from work every day. I spend the mornings in the office and I'm O.T.R. (not On The Rag) "on the road" visiting different clients, offices and branches in the afternoon. My area spans over L. A. & Ventura Counties as well as part of Orange County. So in addition to the 140 miles to & from work, I may log another 150 to 200 miles a day.

What's kinda nice about that is that I get reimbursed for mileage which almost makes up for the car payment & insurance combined.

... & with five points on my license......, you can imagine what my insurance premium is like...

But hey, I bought a car so I can drive it, not so I can park it!
