There`s hope for me yet, but I better keep the hammer down. See, E-Bay is right, they are the million mile car.

Anyone that thinks a 240D is slow drives too fast.

He only got 376k out of his before he had to rebuilt it though. So you did pretty damn good!

At the rate I drive my car I'll be long dead before it ever gets to 1m miles. I bet I only put 5k miles on it this year.

At my current rate, I should get to 1M miles by about 2022 (when I'm about 64).

That's good, hopefully neither of us will ever have to buy a newer car.

when diesel was cheap I would make excuses to drive my car so I could rack up the miles. Weird eh.. lol Normal people make excuses so not to rack up miles.


I'm a year away from the 500 kilometer award.
