My car crossed the 100K mark...

... while doing battle at Auto Club Speedway in the PCA Festival of Speed today. I can't think of a nicer way to cross this mileage landmark. Alas I failed to capture the moment on camera as I was kinda busy.

As a treat I will introduce her to Porsche factory driver Patrick Long tomorrow who is coming out to drive in the Enduro race.

Sadly not when racing, however I recently surpassed the 100K mark as well.

I was doing 100mph when I turned 100k, I thought it was fitting and there was no way I was going to try to get a picture.

Great news and I agree, great setting to reach this milestone, I am right behind you with my 2001S at 28, 545, but not bad though for 10,000 miles since I bought it in late 2008 when it is not a daily driver.! CONGRATS!

Congrats on hitting 100k, guys!
I am at 92k now and I will hit 100k miles this summer. I like Landroverd's method of celebration for the 100k milestone. I will have to start thinking about an appropriate spot to duplicate it.

I buzzed the 100k barrier recently. Sadly, I didn't realise until about 200m later.

Updated: I tried to get the 100mph at 100K and it wasn't in the cards. I wasn't driving, I had the camera though.

I have an '04 Tip. Can you explain the read out in the center instrument? I can't figure what they mean. I get the ones on the left and right.

It's an aftermarket iPod adaptor that emulates a CD stacker, surely.

My '03 hasn't reached the 25k mark yet and I'm the third owner. Weak.

CD #5 Track 99 and 340 miles to go before needing fuel.

Same as my '011 987.
