I'm at 91k. Had to replace the solenoid valve / parts of the twin turbo. I don't have the list in front of me. What ever it was, was covered under my warranty ($3,900)

Yes. Given that 2008 was first year for turbo, I would think anything over 70-75K would be high mileage. I should have been more specific.
