300E - W124 durability

I see many sigs on this board indicating high mileage for this model engine. What is a reasonable expectation before major work is required. My '86 (owned since new) has 170K and has not yet required major work, not even valve stem seals. It uses a quart about every 1,500 miles. Can I reasonably expect over 200K? I'm not asking for guarantees, just educated guesses.
