188,xxx miles

So far I've replaced the expansion tank, water pump, upper radiator hose, oil filter housing gasket, both belts, and the driver side door lock actuator.

Still have to replace the Vanos seals, and the damn thing is still leaking coolant. :facepalm:

Just about 160k miles :D
Did a wheel bearing a few months ago, and now oil separator is going out. The last 55k have been awesome, love this car.

Hi im new here my car has done just under 131k miles and still pulls strong being the straight 6, 2.5 spent just over £1000 this year as it needed a steering rack and all front suspension has been replaced apart from shocks, the rear of the car has had shocks and springs replaced and all it needed for its mot was a little bit of brake pipe next job is a new set of alloys it has m3 18" alloys which have seen better days, and some rust issues down each side of front windscreen then she will be as good as new.

Still running strong. Third owner.

Doing VANOS seals to restore lost power whenever the weather cools down.
211,380 miles

Since my quote above, the major things I have done are:
-valve cover gasket
-oil filter housing gasket
-beisan vanos seals
-fuel filter
-euro 3 DME coding
-oil level sensor
-lower intake boot
-CCV
-front brakes
-brake fluid, transmission fluid, differential fluid, power steering fluid
-radiator
-shocks/struts

Running stronger than before! Most was preventative maintenance.
