    Had a 1985 BMW 325e from 1986 to 2008..Rust was getting kinda bad so I sold it with just under 400,000 km on it. Normal maintenance, although I did change oil every 5000 to 7000 km. One of the best all round cars I ever owned.

    400k on a Beemer! That's not something you hear often. Nicely done.

    Did that tempt you to get another one??

    I just crossed over the 100,000km mark on my micra. It is running and running... I love it. The engine needs a good clean. Something I will do come spring. Otherwise it is purring great. I hope to keep until 300,000kms at least. Then might go back to cycling, especially if I move back to the city. Right now I am super happy.

    20 years on my Honda 1995 CX, BTW never changed the clutch, over 200,000 kilometers. Unfortunately had to sell it and remove it from Mexico due to changes in regulations.
