Late to the discussion but I have an almost 102k m roadster. Miles are put on daily
9 years on the OP could have passed the 100k mile mark himself :)

I depends on your engine, previous owners treatment of the car...some age better than others... My 2003 M54 has done 97k and drives like a dream. Regular services including oil changes along with allowing the engine to warm up before applying gusto serves to keep things in order. :driving:

I just bought a E85 3.0i with 146,000 on the clock, still drives perfectly, doesn't bother me at all, of course the price i paid reflected the mileage but it has a full service history bar one, and I have receipts for oil, plugs etc. for the one missing as previous owner did it himself. Rest of the car is almost perfect, just a few stone chips and one small spot where the lacquer had peeled but I'll sort that.

Z4 3.0l se coupe over 158,000 miles on ours it does over 30 miles everyday don't even consider mileage it's a car not a new born baby, In my clueless opinion the less you use a machine or engine etc the worse it is, I have a very low mileage rvf 400 it needed a top end engine refresh probably due to lack of use.

Mine has 114k on the clock. Probably lost a few horses on the way, but plenty of oomph for me!

Thanks, that is great news as mine is only on 87K!

Mind you the E91 325i (N52 engine) I bought this year is now on 134K and still going strong - I only considered it because of what I had read on here.

Up to 123k here.
Bought at 100k a couple of years ago with a few issues but expecting to get another 100k miles.
The secret ito longevity is good maintenance and no abuse to the engine.
Had over 260k miles from an e36 coupe with M52 engine previously. Bought at around 40k miles.

Mine's just shy of 140k now, use it daily - done 35k in it since Feb 2016. Has a slight oil leak but that's to be expected
