Good question. I usually start looking for a replacement around this kind of mileage and pass the car along to another family member. But the economy being what it is, I may have to keep driving it another year. I guess I can see if it will last as long as the 'ol '87 Coupe de Ville - (210K miles - death by Utility Van on hiway 91/5 merge in 1995)Woo Hoo!!!!
How many miles do you plan on running up before you retire it?
More than a Toyota/Honda/Nissan, less than a Ferrari.Impressive numbers there.. How are the service costs going?
Took the words right out of my mouth... :thumbup:Any estimates how much the car has cost you out of pocket after the warranty was over and maintenance ended? Do you do maintenance as per the computer indicating it needs it and any necessary repairs?
This makes me somewhat hopeful mine will last 10 years, but of course some parts break due to miles drive, others simply due to age.
Happy birthday! :thumbup:
I would really like to put some of these on. How can you tell when control arms start to get worn?(IMO, the best mod one can do to their E9X. I could forgo the M3 lower tension struts as they just basically change camber - the same could be achieved with camber plates. And some minor modification may have to be done due to production variances - note that Dinan doesn't add these to their suspension kit. But the M3 control arms are part of the Dinan kit, and the arms were pure plug and play. What a difference it made to the steering "feel". If I bought another new E9X, this would be the first change I'd make before even washing the car - the control arms make that big of a difference.)
