Just ticked 100k on mine - '03 jet black over nappa extended. Still pulls like a Ferrari in every gear and looks drop-dead gorgeous.

Nice to see so many high-mileage cars out there. Then again, the newest cars are still 16 years old at this point.

I'm at 115k miles so I've only put 11k miles on the car since I bought it 2 years ago. Nothing major so far, just lots of preventative maintenance. Need to tackle a couple more so I can update my thread again!

I am at 208k on my Imola and she still pulls strong. Clutch does need to be replaced but only slips if I take her to a really high speed.

I have a guy that can repair all of the hard stuff like the rebuild of the VANOS and the rod bearings and Chain Guides, and also the timing chain.
