    Ours will soon clock over 130,000 (when on holiday)

    Goes better now than when new (could be the Brabus box though...)

    Another beautiful car! I was quite nervous of keeping any car this long but i can't really see the point in changing when it is doing so well. Well done on your 130k:)

    ^ Thats why my dad kept the E class since picking it up in Germany until a few months ago when I bought it off him.

    It does EVERYthing so well, he was so hoping the new estate would be the one he wanted but.....it just doesn't.


    So he is now waiting for the CLS estate that should be out at the Frankfurt motorshow.

    I'm getting the impression that I shouldn't be too scared of the big 100k!

    What a coincidence - mine went over 100,000 miles last night on the A22.

    100k miles is nowt to a Mercedes, especially a diesel. Come back when it has clocked 400k+ ;)

    A certain indie on the "dark side" posted about a W210 Taxi that they maintained. It was a petrol converted to LPG, the bottom end started knocking at just over 600k. The replacement engine that was sourced had 160k on it!

    There is a fleet of W210's near me all with 300k-450k on the clocks.

    Mine is a wee bairn @ 105k. These Mercs do handle the miles with grace and like a single malt seem to get better with age.

    Some fools are put of with the stigma of having a car with over 100k on the clock and seem to think it will go bang when it turns. Then there is us in "the know".

    By my reckoning that is 4 W203s all over 100k. Mine, whitenemesis, Mike Walker, and Silver Star:)

    I think the cars will have rusted away well before the engine gives up :)

    Well my facelifted one is galvanised and so I hope it will remain rust free for a while yet!

    R2 has seen my car and agrees is not too bad at all for nearly 10 years old. Minor wheel arch stuff to deal with but otherwise seems ok for now.
