100k club, check in!!

128,500 or so. Runs great. Not one bit worried about mileage, daily driver.

Will do shift lever leak, clutch, IMS this winter, then we're in top shape.

Who else ain't so bothered by mileage??

133,000+ miles. Purchased 3 months ago, already put over 7,000 glorious miles on her. I take the long way to work each day now, with extended weekend trips.

Two oil changes : first found small brown nodules in filter, less then 1mm in size, and 1 very thin sliver of metal. My specialist said brown nodules are normal and from timing chain guide, and the sliver if metal is aluminum, so not the IMS. Second change filter looked much better; keeping them at 3000 miles. Changed transmission oil, which was a beautiful metalflake gold color; just something you hate seeing in a car however. Probably never changed, and a definite improvement. Still need to do all the basic's of plugs, brake fluid and coolant flush, other filters. Drives magnificent!

Hope to get to 150,000 miles by next summer!

106,000 miles. 2003 S. On my third water pump, second fuel pump and replaced both window regulators at different times. Other than that, no issues. I am in my fifth year of ownership and it is my daily driver.

104,000 on 1998 IMS guardian installed. No metal in the filter yet. Lots of little things fixed, rather routine with the exception of CLU! We drive it pretty hard.

2000S with 108k. It had 103k when I bought it in December. I love it! I had the ln double row bearing put in and previous and owner took really good care and fixed all the stuff like aos, maf, ignition switch, and new clutch. I'm loving it!
Steve

Edit to provide additional information. I have service records going back around 50,000 miles.

103,000
======
LN Engineering double row IMS bearing retrofit

100,896
======
Bank 1 precat oxygen sensor replaced
Replaced fuel and oil caps due to cracked seals

97,637
===============
Clutch replaced, clutch assembly disk, pressure plate, and throwout bearing
Ignition switch replaced
Parking brake switch replaced (top not working)
AOS Replaced
RMS Seal replaced
IMS Seal replaced

Sometime within the last 20,000 miles (I don't have that one in front of me)
Front engine mount replaced

When I find that folder I will update here with more info, there is also some regular maintenance like spark plugs.

I do not have a record of the water pump ever being replaced.

Had the car since 2006. Previous owner drove long distance a lot. It was daily driven for me but hardly any traffic. My son has it now and daily driven but only 10 miles each way.
