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)
