Got 204 on mine, so far...

It still feels solid and still has as much power now as when I first bought it. It also shifts as smoothly as ever, and I'm not the type to drive softly.

Any major repairs on the engine or tranny?

Just curious...I had an E34 with 297K, 3 owners, only thing changed on it, was a steering pump, was still good but decided to cancel the self leveling suspension.She's still on the road...

Nope, tranny's great. Doing some maintenance right now, tuning it up. Just trying to figure out where on earth this particular sound is coming from. I'll make a new post on that though. Has great power. A maintained BMW's going to far outlast most other cars.

'95 with 142xxx. Other then replacing the valve gasket covers and calipers, she's a angel on the road.

I have 176k on my 04 545i sport. I just spent a bunch of money having a major oil leak(s) fixed. Seems to be fixed now. Other wise I hope to get another 100k out of her.
