How many kilometers do you have?

So, it seems that most people believe BMW's aren't meant to go on forever...
I'm trying to disprove this...


How many kilometers do you have on your car?
Is everything still original?


I have a 2000 323i 236 000 Km on it. Original clutch, engine, tranny.

Anyone else is the higher kilometer range?

I got the car for $1600 from the original owner with full records at 370000kms.
He drove 250km daily on the highway.
Car looks ok and is used as a family workhorse carrying baby, grocery, gardening supplies, building materials. AC was recharged only once. Major work up to date was full suspension overhaul. Car was also in 2 accidents and was fixed.
Once I hit 500000kms, I am going to BMW to ask them if they want to buy it :-)

I sold my 1986 325e 2 years ago, with just over 500k. Can't remember exactly how many. But in the time I had it I did change quite a few bits here and there. Front cross member, rear subframe.... But Motor/Tranny were original, and afer installing the sach clutch, I could still squack thrid! Miss that car!

I think my vert is at 265more or less. Cant remember what it was at before I changed the cluster to the M cluster.

original engine and tranny, just replaced the clutch, it was slipping, and it had an oil leak leaking on to it to make it worse. but done rear struts since i got, front control arms, RTAB, couple other things as well.
