I've got a supercharged BMW from 1997 with over 170,000 miles on the clock. Miles.
I was warned about it, you know, requiring a lot of work.
And sure, it's had various unusual problems requiring attention.
I wrench on my own vehicles though, and when it comes to a classic Bavarian, you literally save 50-90% in mechanic fees.
The vehicles drives amazing, and I honestly feel I'll have many more miles to go.
Of course, there will be numerous unusual fixes along the way, but I don't mind.
170,000 miles on the clock has only shown me that the number is meaningless in terms of determining the value of a car. It's all about history, maintenance, and care. These things are much more challenging to determine. But qualitative rationale often is.
