What is the mileage on your SL500? R129

Just curious what the mileage other members have on their SL500. As for me I have 83,500 now and the engine is smooth as silk. Not sure exactly what I can expect out of this engine. I have seen some for sale with mileage up to 148K, of course the price of these high mileage R129's are very low compared to lower mileage R129's. As with any car, proper maintenance is the key to longevity. And yes I know that the engine in the R129 from 1999 to 2002 is not the same as those in the earlier models. So, what is your mileage?

My 1999 SL500 (with the later M113 motor) is currently showing 146,000miles. It has never missed a beat and seems to get faster as the miles roll on.
