Wow, how's she running? I'm catching up, I just hit 53,000 in my '06

Nice work - I am almost half way there 41,000 miles.

What would be interesting would be a summary of the 'notable' items and experiences over the miles since you have had the car...

The car is running really well right now and still very tight. I put a bunch of money into her in January to get everything up to snuff and she has been very reliable. She typically gets out for ~60+ miles/day.

I've only had the car for 20K miles. Since then I've had to replace the AWD collar gear, angle gear unit, a rear wheel bearing, driveshaft CV joint and some computer module (can't recall of the top of my head). Previous owner had to do many of the common tasks such as brakes, wheel bearings, axle ping, remove driveshaft braket for rain squeal, etc.

Yes, I plan on keeping her and the timing belt will be coming up soon. I also expect the clutch will put a dent in my pocket sometime before 150K. Other than those two items, we'll have to see what goes next. Shock/Struts I may just do with the timing belt later this year.

Compared to my '91 740 turbo s/w, she is running much smoother and tighter for the mileage.

Wow. My 06 VR is 2 years old and has a whopping 32k kms (20 k miles). Even my 1970 P1800 only has 89k miles. Where are you driving? We may have to call you Irv.

My 2006 V70R only has 5,112 miles so far.......!

However, my 1995 Camaro Z28 has 114,000 miles on it and it's still running strong with no oil use and everything still works but the climate control lights which have been out for several years now.

Am exactly a month away from her first birthday and we've logged 17,850 miles to date. I'm figuring 20K/year for the next 5 and really glad to hear that your car is tight and strong at 100K...gives me hope
