The Transit is on 225,000ish.

The Tiger and the B10M - both almost certainly north of 1,000,000.
  • 1984 Leyland Tiger - big, slow. Much like the owner.
  • 1990 Land Rover 90 - awaiting regeneration.
  • 2004 Mercedes Sprinter - shagging wagon. 
  • 2006 Triumph Sprint ST 1050 - small, fast. Not like the owner.
  • 2011 BMW 525d - boring modern.

The Omega I bought off JohnK at the end of Sept with 163K now has 171K on the clock. I am achieving 28 mpg as an average if I don't use it much around town at the weekend.  4.5 months to do 8K

I guess we'll be hitting 185K by Christmas.

My ex-jackytwoshoes BX Break has 247,500 on the odometer, but the speedo has been broken for a fair while. I've done at least 5500 miles since I bought it - I'm guessing the real mileage is about 265,000 but it feels like it's done about twice that

I part chopped my Orion with 43,000 on the clock many years ago. Only thing was that it was 143,000 and that didn't take into account the three years it hadn't worked in which I did 35-40000 miles. The guy was a real spiv type wheeler dealer who thought he was getting one over on me but I think he had a surprise when he started looking over the car after I had gone. At least I assume he did as it was in the paper the day I was chopping it in but every time I drove past (twice a day, to and from work) I never saw it on the bomb site.

Driven loads that's done 200-250k. The worrying thing is they always seem to drive better than something that's done 90,000. I'd make an exception for the van though I moved house in last, 285k Transit Luton. I had to hold it in 3rd gear when it was cold.

The ex-GarethJ, ex-groovylee Octavia isn't too far off now, won't be long.  Alas as I'm changing jobs in a couple of months I probably won't be the one to see it to the 200,000 mark as it now technically belongs to my employer and will stay with them when I go, which is a shame.  

 

And yes, the multifunction display is still borked.  Sorts itself out when it warms up, mind.

My transit has 105k on it. The average speed give or take a couple is 28mph. 105000/28=3750 hours.

3750/24=156.25    It has ran continuously for 156.25 Days. Quite astonishing really.

I had a few cars with high mileage, notably a Y reg 1600cc Escort estate that had done over 450,000. Used to get driven from London to Aberdeen and back each week for a while.

 

I have had a few bikes with high mileage (for a bike-most seem to do about 4,000 miles a year). GSX-R750 with 180,000 miles on it before destroyed in a crash. Fireblade with around 120,000 on it when sold (speedo used to work 20%of the time). GS500 with 100,000 on it before I ran it out of oil.

 

Currently have four bikes I rotate for my commute (20,000 a year) and highest mileage is on the CBR600 at just 70,000 miles. Loads to go as seen one with 310,000 miles on it.

The highest mileage car I've ever owned was that Audi 90 at 151000 miles but that's not that high really. I like looking at the car auction website and seeing what's going though with high or low mileages. this 4 year old Volvo has been busy with 338000 miles, It still looks like new too!.

Then on the other end of the scale you've got this 17000 mile ex-Lifeguard Navaro which has clearly spent the last 14 years under the sea.

That Volvo's done 240 miles a day seven days a week for four years.

Or 350 miles a day five days a week.

 

It would have needed three or four services a year. It looks like it's a D2 or D3 and I reckon it's probably a better used buy than a slightly older one with a quarter the mileage...

The highest mileage I ever owned was this Subaru Legacy with 269.000km when I sold it.

p_2874761_81353834642.jpg?w=1250&h=

 

Bought it with 223.000km two years before. It drove faultlessly. Of course some maintanence required, but 

it never let me down, always started first time and got me where I wanted to go. Best car I ever had, I guess! 

 

P.S.: That´s exactly the one that felt better built and better made than the far-more-expensive Cadillac SRX.  :mrgreen:

My 2cv is rather modest at about 117,000, but I remember the day it passed 100,000, driving around trying to catch the clock as it spun over. Definately didn't take a photo while driving! (or at 110K) 

 

 My previous moped Pedward was of unknown mileage as I owned it for 3 years and the speedo only worked for around a week of that. I don't know how long it was broken, but you know how fast you are going on a moped! I considered fixing it, but as the new cable lasted a week, and the bike had been a swap for a bottle of Jack Daniels, I didn't bother!
