    At what point in a vehicle's life is it more tempting to clock the miles forward rather than backward?

    That one
    I think once a cars mileage passes 200,000 to most people it might as well have 500,000 on the clock, it makes no odds.

    Not a 124 but my friend serviced a 7 year old Sprinter the other week with 450,000 on the clock and it's only ever had the oil and filters changed....

    If it's anything like all the other Sprinters out there it will need new door hinges and probably a complete reshell after 7 years:rolleyes:

    I went in a few 124 taxis in Gran Canaria last year and several had over 1,000,000 kms on them (That's 620.000 miles).
