Ea,lier today my car joined the 100,000 mile club.

 

Is it sad that I drove around the block before I got home to make sure I hit 100,000?

What mileage are you up to and who ha the highest.

How the hell do you get a tank average of 40mpg? I'm at 29 sometimes 30?

You're getting less than 30mpg in an is220d? that's poor

I do struggle to get better than 30mpg in my is250 but then I do mostly short urban journeys, depressing when you think the computer tends to over estimate the true MPG figure

Some impressive mileages. 

Although its hit 100K miles it drives like a car with less than half the miles.

I regularly get a displayed 42mpg as my commute is 80 mile round trip of mostly clear motorway.

The computer is optimistic by about 7% ish

I'm past worrying about mpg these days ...  she wafts along in supreme limo comfort and power and never misses a beat

85.1 ltrs sometimes gets about 520 mpg on a good clean run at 70mph and fully loaded, otherwise it's around 420 on a tankful for ' normal ' motoring

I've got a 121,000 miles and counting. Bought the car last October with 115k on the clock. I've added 2 litres of oil since then, but no other upsets. It still drives like a new car. I sometimes drive with the radio off just to listen to it softly waft down the road.  No squeaks or rattles .

Much better since I put some decent tyres on it, the garage had put 4 cheap Chinese things on, what a difference decent rubber makes, super quiet and planted to the road now

112,000 and still going very nicely thank you 🙏🏼 

Won’t get to second spark plug change this year, I’ll drop the oil again before the winter months and a new cabin filter......

Apart from that 🤞.....

My 2006 IS 220d has 183,300 miles covered.

I have had the car 14 months and covered just over 8,000 of those miles.

When bought Ac was dead. Fitted new condenser and replaced one injector seal. Fitted new avon front tyres and last and every MOT always passed with no advisories. All works faultlessly.

136,000 miles and counting (IS250 auto 2012). Picked it up in 2014 for £17K with 6,000 miles on the clock (and absolute steal IMHO).

It hasn't missed a beat so far. Apart from routine servicing and tyres the only additional costs I've incurred are new discs and pads at 90K miles and a couple of windscreen excesses.

I'm now rapidly heading towards a depreciation cost of 10p a mile - compared with around £2 a mile for the original owner!

I had been pondering about changing to something newer next year but I'm beginning to think the smart move might be to just keep on going until I'm faced with a bill I can't stomach (probably the exhaust in a couple of years time). I might even make it to 200,000 miles before that happens.

Hard to believe that the car has been (the equivalent of) round the world nearly 6 times without any mechanical problem whatsoever. A remarkable piece of engineering.
