High Mileage 6'ers.

Any high mileage 6'ers out there? By high mileage, I'm talking at least a 100,000 miles or more. Even if you're not a high mileage 6'er, post up the current mileage and condition of your 6.

I'll go first. Bought this car in January 2013 with 55k miles on the clock. At 58.2k miles right now and have to do the vacuum pump soon. Had the Mechatronics sleeve replaced under CPO a few weeks ago.

'08 650 vertte! 40,000 miles. I have had it for just over one year and bought it with roughly 28,000 miles. I have done the normal oil change/maintenance and replaced the brakes (under warranty). I also had to replace the vacuum pump (also under warranty). So far, no other major problems.

Mein Auto: 2006 650 convertible!!!
The question is all wrong...you should also ask how long have you had the car. Some guys who answer have only had the car for 4 or 5 months! Let us know your list after 3 or 4 years of ownership.

2006 car with 55k miles, I have owned it since 9/2009, bought it with 28k miles. I am not including oil changes, tires, or fluid flushes, only repairs or standard repairs that occur less than standard timeframe:

FIXED WHILE UNDER WARRANTY CPO:
mechatronics sleeve replaced
steering angle sensor
windshield washer pump
dash cluster failed
ARS block failure
convertible top-unlocked error, bracket fixed per TSB. Still occurs infrequently

REPAIRED MYSELF:
Vacuum Pump
Battery (2.5 year old battery)

REPAIRS NEEDED:
mechatronic sleeve or tranny pan - leaking
valve covers - leaking

I bought my 2005 645ci at 18 months old with 16k on the clock. Sold last year April with 84k on the clock. Only real problem was squealing breaks, took a while to sort but fixed eventually. As for other faults, oil leaks, transmission etc absolutely nothing that caused me to payout any real money, small issues fixed by myself !!!!!!!! even had the original battery.

2005 645, I got it in 9/2010 with 67k. Currently it has 93k.
Outside of normal maintenance the following has been replaced:

Radiator
Expansion tank
A couple PDC sensors

Just got the increased emissions error yesterday, its running fine so probably need a thermostat, goes in on Monday

Battery is weak, will need replaced soon.

I'm very surprised at the low mileage totals quoted by the US/Canadian members. You have a massive land mass with comparatively great roads, public transport doesn't seem to be as popular as it is in Europe (based on my visits to the US). I have done a few road trips through California, Nevada, Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island, Pennsyvanlia, New Jersey, Conneticut, Maryland, Virginia & DC & clocked up lots of miles in a short period of time. How are you guys keeping your mileage so low? To add insult to injury your gas prices are 50% (maybe more) cheaper than what we can buy here in Europe, another excuse to jump in the car.
Me? I have owned my e63 for just shy of 2 years, had 65k miles when I bought it, 91k now, so that's 13k per year. Most of those were clocked up on one of our few Motorways between Cork & Dublin.
The failures in my ownership:
- VANOS soleniod, exhaust side (90)
- Track control arm (360, incl alignment)
- Puncture
- Thermostat (110)
- Cracked rear wheel, style 218 (330, 2nd hand unmarked)

Then usual service items & minor cosmetic upgrades

Mein Auto: 650i 330cic X5d MINI
Mine is an 07 650i 6MT purchased in 09 (2 year lease return) with 13k miles. It is my second car in the winter and third car in the summer so I don't put a ton of miles on it - it now has 37k miles.

Only repair has been a failed passenger side sill plate that would not light up takend care of under warranty.

Out of pocket expenses have been upgrades, wear items and old school maintenance.
Upgrades are clutch delay valve bypass and short shift kit.
I replaced the original Bridgestone tires at 18k miles with Conti DSW's which are holding up really well.
Maintenance has been yearly oil change, trans and diff fluid change at 30k miles, brake fluid changes at 2 year intervals, coolant change at 4 year mark.
Battery is hooked to BMW tender when the car sits so it's still the original (as is the battery in my 02 330 convertible which is also on a tender during winter slumber.)

It still has low miles but so far the ownership experience has been fantastic. Loving this car, and the styling is so unique I'm thinking of keeping long term. I get more compliments on it now than when I first bought it.

If I still have my car for another 3 years probably break the record haha.

Btw, I saw a 07 M6 on sale has 130,000 miles. So I think our 6 series can easily hit 200,000 without burning our wallet.
