Mk3 Mondeo estate I sold with 130,000 miles on it, 100% reliable
The Mk3 Shogun - the dog car - currently on 138,000 miles. Other than tyres, suspension bushes, brakes and a battery, which are all consumables, it's been 100% reliable too.
320d is only around 60,000 but won't be kept to go high mileage.

Lowest mileage was a Skoda Octavia VRS, only around 33,000, it was was garbage with poor build quality, squeak and rattles with electrical gremlins for the added frustration factor.

My first cars came from the late 60s, so having one that lasted past 100k was an achievement. First car was a Viva on 94k. Ran well so long as I remembered it burned oil and topped it up regularly. Sold it to a guy for his wife to use at 115k going great. He then blew up is own car so he started using it to thrash from Worcester to London. According to a mutual mechanic friend, the husband was a mechanical sadist who never checked anything. Motor seized hard on the M40 leaving black lines behind the car until the gearbox cried enough. Rumour control said he was flat out when it happened.

I am currently driving a 14-year old SUV with only 64k on it. Gotta love the desert for the lack of rust, although it has killed the rubber bumpers on the bonnet so it rattles.

My 53 plate E46 330ci vert is on 137k now and is still my daily driver. Had it for 13 years and counting and although regular little repairs crop up through the year it's never been anything major so here's hoping she's got a few miles in her yet!

I've got a great local indy, have only ever run it on V Power and that 3 litre straight 6 is still a lovely thing... silky smooth and sounds lovely... even if I do get overtaken by 320d's now!!

The first car I bought when I was 17 was a 1986 MK2 Golf GTI 8V with 190,000 miles on it. I kept that car for 8 years and sold it with 250,000 miles on it. Great, solid car.

I wouldn't think 2.5 years was all that long but, this is an F30 forum after all. lol The oldest F30's are like 6 or 7 years old now. I once resurrected a 10 year old thread on the e28 forum, the amazing part was the amount of people who responded as if no time had passed at all. lol This place will be like that one day.

I’ve owned high mileage cars in the past because I couldn’t afford a low mileage one.

Times have changed, I have 2 69 plate cars, one has done 1500 miles and the other 400, mileage is but a number though.

Yes but you live in Liverpool. I hear that really rich people donít have new cars as they have better uses for money and donít need to impress the neighbours..

Shame...
