Not to bad considering im only 25 :D
NB: Cars raced in Forza or GT don't count...

(165,000 in an M12? The fuel alone must have cost over 50,000...)

I think that may be the Privelege DCi100 that I was going to go have a look at but didn't have time. The "not quite 150k, honest, guv" mileage sounds familiar.

That's only five digits in one of them though isn't it :D
Still, "which scrapyard will your car be in when it's this old?"

How? Did you double declutch / clutchless rev-match every shift, always engage it at idle revs in 1st and never take it above 3000rpm in any gear?

This may be our new benchmark. Has anyone got the motivation to scan the whole thread and find out what the highest posted figure is? The only one I see close in the previous five pages is someone having *seen* something for sale with 200 more miles on it.

Clio II-2, 118,000 & a bit miles at present, reporting in. Got some by now well documented running faults, the handling feels a bit off, and the engine sounds like a bag of angry scissors at cruise even when everything's working properly, but it's otherwise cherry.
Currently in tahrey's garage:
Honda CG125, Scott Voltage MX5, dirt, lots of random bottles and tools, porktastic Clio III DCi, dodgy shelves...
