    Man, that's half what I have on my 99. I'm just over 74K.

    Yet another thing that makes me jealous of your car.

    why are you disappointed? With that many miles and your car is holding up fine i bet. Bitch about it if the doors/fenders/chassis starts falling off-then i'd be dissapointed.

    Holy crap that's alot of miles!

    Good to know though. I freaked out when mine hit 80k, it'll be hitting 83k in a few weeks, I'm trying to drive it a bit less to hold it off for as long as I can, lol.

    90K, then 100k, will really hurt. After 100k I probably won't worry about it anymore.

    I've got 156K on mine. Paint is still decent and original. M6 needs some work, but other than that it drives very nice. It's all in how the car is cared for in determining the longevity.

    Btw, this is my first TA and I love this thing. I went from a resto mod 1967 C10 lowrider truck to this. What a change : )
