What does your mileage read?

My car just hit the 90K mile mark and I was just curious if anyone has more?
I have an '02 745i and a commuter car, '06 Nissan 350z but can't help but always wanting to drive the bimmer. Believe it or not the 745i has better MPG than the Nissan; my 350z avg is 19mpg, 745i avg is 24mpg.

I hear a lot of horror stories with '02 models in the posts and thank god my car does not sit in the dealership that often. The most severe warranty work I had on my car was a transmission swap because the car jolts forward during (slow and gradual) stops. Other than that, I experience minor quirks here and there but nothing that would make me hate the car.

holler back!!!

I beleive the one on the iDrive screen and the cluster are the same. The last time I reseted it was about 3 months ago. I do mostly highway driving to work which is about 50 miles one way.
