What Is Your Mileage ? Who's Racked Them Up ?

37 posts in this topic

Hello all,

Just a roll call of the higher mileage people on here, mines only got 53k, and when I owned BMWs I saw many a person over the quarter million mile mark, but just who has some of the highest milers here !?

And include if you can what major components you have replaced ?

Hello all,

Just a roll call of the higher mileage people on here, mines only got 53k, and when I owned BMWs I saw many a person over the quarter million mile mark, but just who has some of the highest milers here !?

And include if you can what major components you have replaced ?

I think you can consider tyres, brake discs/pads(shoes?) and even exhausts as consumables (and EGR valves on mk3 mondeos!)

, my plan was/ is to replace the old components with better, stronger/ faster/ more reliable components,

Upto about 90k my car had all the origanal components, then the back- box fell off, and the DMF started playing up, i fitted the SMF/ carbon kevlar HD clutch to replace the DMF -

This is the only major component that needed replacing, the car has the original, block, crank/rods pistons cams, injectors, both fuel pumps/ turbo inlet/ exhaust manifolds (for now) - it has had very little spent considering 8 years of ownership and almost 100% reliability (i even "nursed" the desintegrating DMF along for about a year)

The connection onto the radiator fan failed, this caused a "knock-on effect" with the coolant leaking between the waterpump/ power steering pump, i felt i may as well "go for it" and fit an Electric waterpump

I plan to fit a lighter exhaust silencer, and go up from a 2-1/4" system to a 2-1/2" at some point, (and a better decat) but the 2-1/4" is working well so i might as well get the milage out of it - i have a spare exhaust manifold/ turbo to fit, which i want to get ceramic coated and a custom blanking plate with EGT sender

I have a new inlet manifold, gas flowed, with a 1-off modified oversize inlet to fit, along with a complete set of custom oversize boost pipes

I guess all the upgrades / component replacements help, but some of the modifications probably help the logevity as well (eg - the EGR delete/ breather bypass making the inlet cleaner/ less contamination/ engine etc lasts longer)

Our 2000 Ford Focus has 167,500 miles on the odometer with no major repairs or replacement parts - just good old regular oil changes.

Yes the bodywork looks pretty awful it has to be said, but mechanically she just keeps on going and going and going...

Just got rid of a mk3 2.0 petrol estate with 194k on it. Had replaced clutch and flywheel (dualmass is damn expensive man!), all the suspension arms, bearing front and back, EGR valve, and it still wanted new rads (both cooling and ac were rotting to hell), valve stem steals plus the air bag control unit was shot and I was struggling to get 28mpg out of her so i thought it won't get through MOT with new regs (which are a pain the backside) so i might as well get newer car. So picked up 1.4 focus with 72k on the clock and still having problems with that too! lol

Mind you it had been used as a workhorse for 3 years and had 35k put on her in that time! :)

I don't for one minute regret getting my ford, well apart from a few issues even though its a low miler.

But when I used to have a Beamer 4 or 5 years ago, people were coming up with 400k + and a few euro people with their million km 6-pots.

I reckon, and what I didnt mention was that I modded her to full ST190 spec at 50 000 kms. Cams, exhaust, induction, 60mm Throttle body, Uniq+ Chip
