Just about to 260,000 and had my alt go bad yesterday. Found a picked replacement for $75 and swapped in 1 hour. Bought the car with 145,000 on it and since replaced nearly all of the suspension, tie rods, radiator, vanos seals, valve cover gasket and light control module. Yes, it's alot of tinkering but come on, I have a beautiful luxury car that's fun to drive and it has cost me less than $3,000 for worn out parts in over 100,000 miles. Did I mention I got the car for $5,500 then shortly after hit a pot hole that nearly totaled the car and insurance paid me $5,700 for repairs? All it needed was new shocks and a door panel, (the air bag blew and wrecked the panel). That's about $.03 a mile and going down by the day!
