Highest Milage on Original Rod Bearings??

I know, I know, another rod bearing thread... Relax. Im sure I'll get a reaming, but whatever. I came upon this same titled thread, but in the E39 section. I did some searching and didn't find anything for the E60 M5's, but thought it might be interesting. Now my intention is not to convince or prove to anyone to replace or not to replace their bearings, just for entertainment and maybe some helpful information. Like when your a kid, it was always nice to finish the night of with a funny movie after a horror movie marathon. Now "Rod Bearings" is in the title, so if your that sick of reading about them, you shouldn't have clicked on it.

That being said, My 06 has a bit over 79,000 miles, and is bone stock (for the time being.), and is just my weekend car. I had an oil analysis on the first oil change when I first made the purchase, came back spic and span. I am anxious to do another one, which will be testing the oil that I have driven as opposed to the previous owners. I never exceed 3,000 rpm before reaching proper temp. But once that temp is met, I driver her hard, but never to a point where she seems uncomfortable. Are these not the funnest f*cking cars ever..? Hmm, maybe that should have been the tittle...

Anywho, see what happens

I seem to recal a car a few years ago that was well over 200k and hadn't had the rod bearings replaced yet, it was almost before that was becoming a big issue.

My car has about 84.5k on it, original bearings, Blackstone says they should still be just fine but I do want to get them replaced sooner rather than later.

Highest Milage on Original Rod Bearings??

My 2008 6sp is at just shy of 110,000 miles...been using the liqui moly 10w60 since 75k. I change oil every 15k, as I'll blow through a quart (with hard driving) on a regular basis. Had a Blackstone analysis done at about 90k and all was well!

Bone stock... oops now wait... charcoal delete

I wonder if any of these higher mileage original rod bearing cars are modified or not and to what extent.

Mine is not stock, pulley, intakes, throttle bodies, exhaust, and tune.

Again, 106k miles on my '08 6MT. Doesn't really eat oil, black stone comes back good every time.
