Well.... that's about it. I just wanted to know how the rest of you felt when it happed, if it was really a TV momentm ya know, like on the simpsons? I personally missed it, cause I didn't know I had that many km's on my car recently, so I was a bit upset. I guess I have 160,000 to look forward to (100,000 miles) and 200,000 eventually!

I bought mine with 72000 km back in April of last year or something??? I normally put on about 3000+km a month. I have put on 5000 one of those months though. I drive far too much also.

No it was a company use vehicle. The guy used it to deliver mail and other pkg's..kinda like a private hotshot service. Unreal maintainence record. He said the speedo cable snapped and it didnt track any miles for a few days till he had time to repair it..which is probably a thousand or two more kms. for his line of work.

That's cheating.

Is that miles or km?

If it's km, I'm gonna drive out to California and back this weekend just to leapfrog you.

When I rolled over 200,000mi, I stopped in the middle of the road and gave my dad a call (since he bought it new). When I got his machine, I left a message, but still wanted to tell someone who might care, so I called my mother and said excitedly, "The car just rolled over 200,000!".. which was followed by silence from the other end.

Apparently you should never, ever, ever call up your mom and begin with, "the car just rolled over."

LOL! I know what u mean about the car rolled over thing... I called my mom once, and all of a sudden something ran out infront of my, and I said oh shit just as I hit a dead zone... scared her shitless. I couldn't call her for like 2 mins either! Stupid rabits that I nearly hit. I remember though being excited over my 80,000km.

How was Cali highanddry?

I was at 313,000 on my first engine (the one that I replaced for no apparent good reason!!) there's probably about 320 on the car now.

I got home from work and my odometer said 199,999. So I drove around the court in giant circles just to hit 200k. My whole family was watching and laughing. Then 12k kms later, the engine blew.......oh well.
