Most Miles on a GP2 thus far?

Hi guys,

Just wondering how many of you daily or drive your GP often?

Im looking to pick one up, but it has quite a few more miles than most ive seen popping up for sale.

Any of you guys here getting close to 50k?

I have 27K. I love the GP. I've had no problems, other than my brake rotors seem to be "dishing." (See other thread.)
Lots of fun, and I've good experience with other sports cars (M Coupe, Cayman R, 2006 GP, 1M....)

I picked up #081 lat month with about 23K on it from an independent dealer. Took it to the Mini dealer for a full review and all the work was covered under warranty (faded graphics, rear brake sensors, windshield trim strip, check shock ride height).

I drive it every day 20+ miles to work (super early and at speed) and return on back roads. It totally rocks & couldn't be happier.

Just about 40K on mine. Round trip commute is about 60 miles.

Front brake pads replaced twice, rears once. Front struts replaced twice. Love the car!

6k on mine as well. Not going to add any in the near future as she is sleeping in the garage in anticipation of winter (though we are expecting high 60s in NH for Christmas eve).

Higher miles would not concern me if the car was taken care of - which should be easy to figure out. Good luck!

I must say, it has been nice driving the last week due to much lighter congestion and traffic on the roads.

Hey Zuluracerx, if you're in SoCal we should meet. Or maybe start a sub-club the "080's"!
