Very impressive mileage, but like most things, it's not so much the quantity, it's the quality. A straight liner would be hard pressed to post miles like this doing a 1/4 mile at a time.

what year? what all have you had to replace?

we've done a clutch twice, the trans and rear end were replaced under and extended warranty at around 75k, and it had the ignition thing replaced.. other that it's been plugs and oil, car has been great. bought it w/ 15k in 2007

You're right! No way it would be in as good a shape beating on it at the track..

Re: 100,000 MILES and Counting, Who Else?

A variety of things have been replaced over the 12 years I have had the car. Did a complete makeover of the car at 115,000 miles, including engine, trans, brakes, suspension, paint and body.

Replaced soe original parts just recently that were used on the new engine, the balancer went, and then tranny went (the tranny was a slightly used tranny when it was put in the car with the engine swap). Had to replace the grounding strap on the block last year, and the AC compressor finally went this past summer.

Almost 110,000 on my wife's 2002 convertible. Just one tune-up and fluid / filter changes. One set of tires, one set of brake pads.

Re: 100,000 MILES and Counting, Who Else?

I just hit 124k in my 02. Other than the transmission failing the engine itself sure feels strong. Bought it at about 90k a few years ago.
