I have a 97 528i with 213,000 and everyday I cant believe how perfectly new it feels. I cant believe the odometer in fact I have had to clock it with another car because I just cant believe its right! Original engine/tranny.

I would love to see what everyone has here for milage on original engine/tranny. Post away...
