My Ride: '04 525i exclusive package, black saphire, beige interior, sun roof, steptronix box, stock standard

muzik to my ears 'cause i have 58k miles on my '04 525i! my motorplan expires in september 2010, looking at the cost of renewing it, even for 6k miles or 1year, it is simply too much!! judging by the numbers being thrown around here, i am feeling confident about my family road yacht.

how about high mileage 535xi's or even 535i's? We all know the 530 motor is indestructible, but what about those twin turbos

My Ride: 2008 550I LOADED, all options except HUD and NV

Wow, amazing the mileage some of you have put on your cars. My 05 530 has 58k miles on it so I am not sure it'll ever see 100k with me as the owner - who knows.

You need to drive more John

I've got 78.5k miles on my 2005 545i right now and it's purring like new! The previous owner had maybe $1-$2k worth of repairs in the first 67k miles then when I took over I had a coolant leak which would have cost about $400 but was covered under warranty. Knowing my habit with buying and selling cars on a regular basis, I doubt this will see the 100k mile mark but who knows, it is one of the best cars I've every owned.
