It just occurred to me that my 55 plate 2.0 TDCi with 131k miles on the clock is still on its original exhaust after almost 9 years. I've owned it from new so I know its original. Can anyone beat that?  B)

 

Still on the original clutch too and hoping it lasts another couple of years.

My original exhaust was scrapped after 18 months but my replacement will outlast the car, T304 stainless
Id just like to add that a diesel car's exhaust will outlive that of a petrol
Because diesel engine produce more oil and carbon which lines the exhaust repelling moisture corrasion
Petrols have a lot of condensation in the exhaust with less oil substance to protect lining.
