Hit 100K today!

Well after 3 years (bought the car used with 44K) I finally hit 100K miles today. It was a funny feeling. I felt like something bad might suddenly happen as I hit 100,000 haha! But she's going strong and to date, I have had zero problems with her! All I've ever done is change the oil ever 7K to 8K miles. Oh and filters of course. Also got a smog check and passed on the first go! Hehe... all of this fun and I still get about 28mpg around the city and 31 on the highway! I love my car!

Niice! I hit 80,000 two days ago and thought that was pretty good ... you get the trophy though!

I am sure I'll hit the century club soon enough
1984 - 944 - The first one.
1984 - 928S - The loudest one.
2001 - Boxster - The best one.

Congrats, I will have a celebration if and when I get to 100K, especially if nothing blows up before hand. I got my 2000 base Boxster a few years ago with 43k on the clock, it had two previous owners. It has 85K on the clock now, probably will be up to 90K after trips this summer. I get in the low 20's mpg around town (spirited driving), high 20's on the highway.

The only trouble, or maintenance issues that I can think of that were not self-induced by modding the car, have been plastic rear window and clutch. I change the oil and filter every 5-7K, plugs yearly, and feed the sweetie lots of tires, getting 4 new PS2's next week. It has been extremely reliable, it just keeps running and running strong, wait a minute, I am looking for some wood to knock on......

That reminds me of a Richard Petty story...

After winning his 100th race, a reporter asked a young Richard Petty what he'd do next. Petty replied with exuberence, "200!". Years later when Petty finally won his 200th race, a reporter asked him what he'd do next. A tired Petty said, "201". But he never got that 201st victory. Good thing he didn't say 300 or he would have been extremely disappointed. This way he only missed his prediction by 1.

Congrats Conradtan. May your next 100K miles be trouble free.

Punkin's accumulated 13K miles. Will be driving it more now that the weather is getting better.
