    Any of you guys had any accidents? You must spend more time looking at the odometer than you do the road.:D I myself do not do that, except on my now gone E300 estate I had all six digits 123456.7:D I like the car numbers, but there are so many, I would have thought Volvo would have most of them covered:D 240,245,164 oooo thats old:( :D etc etc

    Not in the slightest.

    My mileometer clocked up to 55555 a few days ago and I contemplated a similar post, but forgot.
