Well, that's 10 times as many as is on mine now. However, I do have well over 100k on one of my motorcycles. With more good weather starting today, I plan on getting some topless time this week!!!!

You're in Germany now so you will have to convert that to kilometres for us.

I assume based on your mileage and location in the US when you were here that this was pretty much a daily driver year round. Based on your amount of miles and experience, what do you recommend in regards to maint for getting that far without major problems? I plan to try and get 200K miles on any car I now own. (I have 253K on my 97 Accord, had 275K on my 87 Nissan Sentra, and over 200k on an Acura Accord before I got rid of it. These were mostly highway miles as I lived 60 miles from work.)

144.840 km

I did not buy the car new, it had 70,400 miles when I bought it in Dec '05. I can't vouch for the maintenance up until that time, but given the condition, I would say it was well maintained and I've just kept with regular maintenance intervals (A & B).

Yes, it has been a daily driver since I bought it. That was the intented use from the beginning.
