Hi the idea of this thread is to identify the highest milage Merc we have on the forum....

I will start with my car. ONLY post a reply on this thread if your car is higher mileage than the post before you and keep to the same format. Dont post if your car is lower mileage or start a discussion as it will make it all confusing.

if your car is lower mileage than the post before, then DONT POST! The idea is that the last post on the thread is always the highest milage.

also only post if you still own the car - its members own cars of interest here, not cars you have seen with high milegage... only your own please

The next post will be my contribution! I know of cars on the forum with over 300k so it will be interesting to see the results.

One member called Pontooner had a 124 with a documented mileage in excess of 420,000 but isn't it a case of what bits are still original? at the risk of going off topic

Well if we ignore Pontooner's car, W124 e250 diesel, 202k, all original running gear.

My car 1998 E300TD Estate turned over 277000 miles yesterday. Hope i havent broken the rules SilverSaloon.

Moving parts that have needed changed are the water pump (impellor cracked bearing fine), alternator freewheeling pulley, nearside front wheel bearing. Thats about it apart from routine brakes shocks etc etc. Oh and new front springs that only lasted 275000 miles before they broke within a month of each other.

Oh yeh it has had four new shafts and 2 new heads LOL.
