170,xxx and 183,xxx on my e30's, both run perfect.

the one with 183xxx miles was VERY neglected by its previous owner, and she still runs strong. 2 cylinders werent even firing when i bought it.

The Odom wasn't working on my 91 318is when I bought the car last Sept....shows 150k...Still haven't got around to fixing it....Still runs VERY strong....No leaks or oil burning.....Had to replace the clutch a couple months back, but that was only because the throw-out bearing was bad....
Only smoke you can see is coming off the tires....lol

Roughly 150,000 miles on Bojangles, a 1985 325e. Runs great around town, not so great highway pickup. I'm working on that.

Great shape for a car with 245,000kms on it though. And she'll be getting the full treatment soon enough.
