Who has the highest and lowest mileage!

Post by z3steve » Mon 20 Jun, 2011 13:04

Well following from the topic 'Young and old' I thought we could find out who has the most and least miles on their Z3.

I suppose I'll start it off then.....

Built July '99; 159k miles...

Nothing as exciting as a spaceship.

National Express Coach (Volvo B12 with I shift box). Swansea to London twice a day for 5 years soon racks the mileage up!

Got to be honest though, it drove very nicely, and felt quite tight. One careful owner, never raced or rallied etc etc.

My 1998 2.8 has this week rolled over 150,000 miles

Still love it, still runs sweet (touch wood) had a clutch at about 120,000. lots of oil changes, a few pads and enough rubber to clear up STIs for all 6 billion of us
