I saw one a while back with over 450k miles and just one owner. That says something..

Re: Highest Mileage Car.. post your mileage

Doesn't surprise me. They are a very impressive car. I've driven mine daily for 8 years now and can't imagine driving anything else. It just feels right in every way. :-)

Re: Highest Mileage Car.. post your mileage

I know the feeling, i'm on #3 with another one laid up needing TLC. Fab cars but somewhat quirky in a few ways though i'd rather the quirks than over other issues i've had with other cars. I've met many safrane owners and they've all said despite the age, battered bodywork etc they just can't bring themselves to part with theirs. One old boy i met said he'd done the badge snobbery and preferred his Safrane to BMW, Merc, Audi etc - all of which he'd had from new. Another bought himself a brand new Merc and refuses to let go of his Safrane because of its superior reliability and first time starting. For the money (both when new and now at the peanut price) you get a lot for the money.

Under rated and many folks (badge snobs) will frown heavily on the Safrane.

Re: Highest Mileage Car.. post your mileage

I had a few R25's and they were the same. Bloody brilliant cars (that very few people rated other than actual owners who loved them!) My neighbour also had a Safrane and replaced it with a Jag XJ. He always preferred the Safrane but his son wouldn't sell it him back! I kind of like the anonymity of the Safrane. It just does what you want it to do with the mimimum of fuss but provides the occupants with supreme comfort and understated style.

I had mine converted to LPG a few years back so it's even cheap to run. Passed it's MOT with no advisories yesterday too so I'm a happy man. :-)

Lol.. at least they kept it in the family

I don't suppose you have any details of the LPG system fitted? - EG part numbers?

I am told my Autogas that its not actually a legal requirement for it to be fitted by a certified installer but most insurance companies insist on this. In theory you could DIY it and get it certified. I've yet to double check on the legal aspects but if correct, it would make driving a lot cheaper.
