Holly Crap, grats and good job!! I hope my 06 3.0i comes that far as well, being a big stickler for maintenance and lack of abuse should get me there.
Grats again!

Congratulations, ggd4971!
Does anyone have more miles?
Could you give us a list of the major service/repairs/replacements you've done over your 200K?

Awesome job ggd4971! You should write an article on how to take the car to 200, 000 miles and still keep it going.

I bought my 07 on 97K so I am atleast hoping to take her to 150K if not more.

Passed 115.000 miles near the Spartanburg plant yesterday. Granted my X3 wasn't made there, but kind of symbolic, or coincidental, however you wish to interpret.

It probably depends on what you have done in the past and when.

My 2009 x3 just hit 75k. Just did inspection 2 and did the first brake job. Only rear pads needed to be replaced and rotors had plenty of life still. Fronts are still in good shape.

Mein Auto: X3
When I bought my x3 new I paid for the 100k maintenance plan. Based on my driving that should be in August. With that said I had the following done included in the plan:

Rear brake pads
Air filter
Oil change
Cabin air filter
All fluids top off
Full inspection including checking my cooling system
New wiper blades

On my dime ($403) I had them do the following:

Tranny fluid
Both differentials
Transfer Case

I changed those at 50k and I am now going to follow a 25k change for those. I know it is above and beyond but I hope to get 300k to 400k miles.

Nice! I'm at 42k on a 2007 (bought recently), and I'm doing those items plus brake fluid, power steering fluid, and coolant flush as these look like they've never been changed as well
