Wow! I was worried about hitting 27k miles :thumbsup:
Tripped over 150,000 miles last week.
Still reliable, has never left me stranded anywhere
Original OEM gearbox, shocks, and all of the exhaust except the y pipe
Bit of a "chirp" between 2nd and 3rd, been around for the last 40k miles, getting worse
A couple of the LEDS still work in instrument cluster
Paint bubbling again on one of the doorhandles (bodyshop man has done a runner)
Needs a service (again)
I've been using the valuation on autotrader, just as a constant, so the current numbers are....
Total Maintenance costs: £29845
Total Tyre costs: £7896
So, having done 150,000 miles in 8 years 4 months, an average of 18,000 miles/year:
Total service, maintenance and tyre costs: £37743
Original Cost: £52,345. Current part-ex value: £21,380. Total Depreciation: £30965
Total annual costs including maintenance, repairs, tyres and depreciation: £8244, or 45.8p per mile
Been moving house recently (Even further away from civilisation, so the mileage will only go up faster from now on!) and haven't washed it recently - will do soon and get some pics up soon
