Who has the most miles?

Back when I was active on the e65/66 threads someone started a post asking who had the highest mileage as well as each member describing what problems they had. From that data we were able to determine what the common problems that one could expect from their vehicle. The failing valve stem seals, DVD NAV reader, jerky transmission were problems that almost everyone experienced. So I thought I'd start a similar thread here for the high mileage F0x owners to post into.
I only have 60K miles on mine and no problems to report at this time. I know that the valve stem seals will be a problem on these vehicles as well since there is a BMW TSB published regarding fixing the issue using the All German toolkit. You would think they learned their lesson from the N62 engine but apparently not.

So, who has 200K miles and no problems?

No where near 200k as you wanted, however, my 2009 is approaching 70k. CCP completed Jan. 2015, new DME as of this past September (covered by emissions warranty), oil consumption isn't terrible (roughly 1qt) every ~5k miles. Other than that it's been purely maintenance. knock on wood.

It would also be great if we posted year and model of car because I'm slowly learning there are big differences in the 740's vs 750's and pre 2013 vs post 2013.

I have a 2013 740i with 56K; no issue but I've only owned it for 3 months.

Thanks to all on this board; reminds me of the comradery they have on Bimmerboad when I had my e38.

Had the car about 2 years 3 months and the first issue had just popped up. Sounds like a clicking noise coming from glove box when the A/C is on. Having it looked at on Tuesday

When my '09 750i was totaled on the day before its 4th birthday, it had 77K. I had to have all fuel injectors replaced, but that was at 44K or so, under warranty. I didn't have to spend anything from 50K onward.

My '14 750i has around 53K, and it is a much better car. I think the '09 models had the usual problems since it was the 1st year for the F01s.

Talking

I have a 09 with a 103k on it now. Engine replaced at 96k and before that, the CCP was done. The turbos were replaced also at a total cost of 22k covered by BMW. Not getting rid of for a while at this point.

356K miles is amazing, but I don't think the N63 could go that many miles.

I sold my E38 to get this F02, i had 210K when sold but coworker that bought it has added lots of my mile. he has a 80mile roundtrip to work everyday.
i take care of my F02 the same. oil changes at 5K, spark plugs at 25-30K so forth with hopes i get 300K from F02. im at 103,400
