2001S with 160k. Bought it 7 years ago with 40k and have driven it every day since.

As far as I know it still has the original clutch!

No IMS change
Water pump changed at 140k and again at 150k due to failures.

Oh, no.

Born / raised in Antioch. Moved here in 1991.

Could never imagine moving back. Altitude, no humidity, fly fishing, mountains, snow, and I couldn't own half of my guns there. It was much different in the 70's and 80's when I was there. At least Bart finally made it that far!!

104K on my '97. Owned for nearly a year. Original IMS. Only maintenance has been tires, engine and manual tran oil. Brakes, plugs, and coil packs next. Original AOS, fingers crossed... Daily driver, hoping to get to 150K...

not my thread but if possible please include whether original water pump, AOS and IMS are still in.
All of these can fry an engine. I'm curious which cars made it to 100K on all original stuff.

Yes, I've had it in Orlando just under 2 years and the previous owner and his dad who owned it before him live near Vero beach on the east coast of Central FL.

Many other items have been replaced to keep it looking like new but as far as the engine that was all.

Gaah glass window top, depo tail lights, litronic headlights, 2 headlight switches, seats reupholstered, passenger air vent, visor mirrors and housings, dash and door speakers, floor matts, led smoked third brake light, fuel cap, coolant cap, front drop links and a control arm, repaired the rear control arms, drivers side seat belt sensor, air bag retention frame, wheels and tires, radio with bluetooth/hands free and aux jack, mesh intake grills, LED lights for interior/trunks/license plate, rotors and pads etc...

2001 Base, 127k miles. Bought 2 months ago from brother-in-law, but I have seen the car since he got it at 80k miles in 09.

As far as I know, the car still definitely the original bearing, and possible the original water pump.

What he got done when he bought it at 80k:
  • spark plugs
  • new clutch and flywheel
  • cam cover leak fixed
  • new tires

What I did when I got the car at 123k:
  • Trasmission fluid
  • AOS
  • throttle body cleaning
  • MAF cleaning
  • CV axle boots replacement

The car has P0410 and P1411 codes, otherwise, running great, but will need water pump, front motor mount, tune-up, control arms very very soon.

Bought my 2002 in 2006 with 45k from the original owner who kept it in excellent condition. It now has 107k on the original IMS and water pump, but I replaced the AOS last year. I drive it top down in Minnesota from late March/April to November (depending on snow) and am enjoying every mile!

Just a quick update. As of 4/11/14, my '04 base has 100k miles. As far as I'm aware, the water pump, AOS, and IMS are original though the clutch was changed not long before I bought it in 2010 (bought w/ 67k).

Slated to change the spark plugs, water pump, thermostat, coolant, serp. belt, brake fluid, and oil/filter in the next month.

115k now (I think!)

The only things original to the car are 75% of the body panels and the frame and the floor carpeting and dashboard.

Seriously.

102.5K 00 S -- at least 500 track miles since purchase

Bought with 100.5K

Looks to have a new WP. No idea on other mechanicals.

I've added deep sump kit, baffle kit, under drive pulley, KW sport coil-overs, Tarret mono ball strut supports and camber plates, rear drop links, M030 sway bars, rebuilt half shafts and wheel bearings. Adding spin on oil filter adapter, oil temp and oil pressure senders -- gauges not installed yet.

She's gone from a garage queen to a track mistress -- I think she's actually happier :-)
