Thats ~128 miles per week, probably 1-3 days of driving per week so a weekender or couple weekday commutes of grin producing fun. Nice!

I'm creeping up there myself at about 85k miles.

Time for a more serious 100K maintenance?

Kudos to Stelan but the rest of you need to drive your Boxsters more.

Pretty nice! I'm sure your Indy in Austin must be pretty happy to keep your car on the road at 200k. I'm located south of you in SA..and of course south of you in miles as well lol Once I find a great Indy, I may be more likely to put more miles on my Boxster.

Still in diapers @ 90.5k miles
2-3 years from that milestone mark
Maybe it's time to sell while it can get those big $$$ for a less than 100k mile category

I just turned 50k, so it will be a while before I roll up to 100. I get in around 5k per year of seat time.

Man, my 97 has 66k on it, I am way behind but it's because I have a few other cars I enjoy.

Actually my Indy is very happy as my Indy is me, lol
No one has touched my Boxster in a long time but me

I bought my 99 in San Antonio a while ago.

I would be ashamed if I ever took my car to a mechanic.

Don't get too cocky. Just a year ago I posted the same milestone on my 2003 S. This fall, and 6k miles later I had a catrosphic failure that has all the hallmarks of IMS

I can never be comfortable driving this car. I can't listen to 2-3 songs without muting to make sure the engine isn't eating itself

The other day I drove 6 hours, car ran great, pull into gas station and while waiting in line a freaking CEL pops up. It was a 442 which I get from time to time especially if I've gotten gas during the day but still this car never lets me relaxe

Before this I had never had the pleasure of listening to an engines's valves meeting the pistons. I hope to never hear that sound again
