100,000 mile mark

Ok gang. I should hit the 100k mark some time next week. I was wondering if I'm going to be the first? Wonder if Mini USA will give me a gold star or something for this mile stone?

Wow, Doug! Way to go....motoring!

I hope that when you do cross the 100K mark that you will post a full report about your motoring experience and how your MINI has held up, as well as how long you plan to keep it. You certainly deserve some special recognition from MINIUSA! I hope they're following this thread.

Just rolled over 30K with one week to go before Mr. Tumnus's 1 year birthday.

I'm looking forward to 100K - congrats!

whats up well from what i know you and me where the highest ones here on this bored im at 70,000 now but since i started my new job its so much closer now that ive been not going so much, unfortunatly my mini has not been out of the state of michigan, all these miles are simpley detroit metro area miles

but if i stayed in my ol area we would be neck to neck but then again the car is onely 1.5 years old and i picked it up with 4 so not so bad if ya ask me!!!!

but congrats on all those wonderfull miles, i hope you enjoyed puting all those miles on as much as i do!!!!!!

good luck on hitting the mile stone hehehe

dpilgram -

Serious Congratulations! You may well have the highest mileage MINI in the US. You should contact MINIUSA about that to see if they have a high mileage club. I once had a Volvo which topped 100,000 and Volvo sent me a rather nice grill badge which they apparently made for 100K, 200K and so on. Inasmuch as not many MINI's would have normally reached that plateau yet, they may not have given this much (if any) thought so perhaps you could be the trendsetter for the rest of us. And I thought 20K in a year and a half was excessive. You're already an inspiration to us all!:smile:

Gold star? They should give you a gold car and feature you in their new "Let's really motor!" ad campaign.

Congrats!

My '02 MCS will be 2 in August. I have 8,000 miles on the clock at this time. Unfortunately, the low miles are because I have been sick most of the last 2 years.

Looking forward to getting better so I can put some real miles on the Mouse.:smile:

Good going guy, I thought I was burning up the miles. I will cross 64k later this week and I picked my MINI up in April 2002. Been up and down the East Coast, have not ventured very far West. Maybe later this year.....

I live in Florida and have 2 vacation trips out west to the Grand canyon and as far North as Glacier National Park area. Plus I drive on the average about 140 per day to work. Boy do I love to drive this car.

I also have the 15% Alta pulley and intake Denso plugs plus BMP short shifter, Magmaflow exhaust. I have had most of these items on the car for over 60,000 miles with only having to change the belt tensioner and idler pulley. Other than that the only small item has been the air bag light having to be fix 3 times. I bought the car in early July of of o2 right of the lot with out waiting.
