I'm at 172k miles. My front end is mostly exposed to bugs rather than rocks because so many of my miles are on the Kentucky back roads with nobody in front of me, so there are really not as many rock chips as you would expect. However, I've harvested roughly 15 bunnies and last winter one hopped up just as I hit it and damaged the lower area in front of the driver's corner (broke the body panel with a crack that runs front to back about 2 inches from the bottom). I used clear packing tape to hold it together and it's not even noticeable, though I have to replace the tape every few months.

I also drive the xB when the roads are salted, so it doesn't see much of the junk they put on the roads when they put junk on them.

I'm at 172k miles, but I did have to replace the throwout bearing at 150k. I replaced the clutch while they were in there...

122,000 miles...I did a AT flush and had the spark plugs replaced at the dealership while the engine was out with Valve Spring recall...almost three weeks later when they finished with fixing CEL due to their lack of experience...was close to $500 in charges...not complimentary

Well I feel better about my 79k mi. Now hahaha
How do you guys rack up so many miles??

Commutes
Only car
Eat sleep track/canyon/drift days
7 day work weeks
Vacations
Road trips frequently
All of the above? Lol

Anyway glad to see people driving their FRS/86/brz's!

Not 100K, but, I am going to hit 80,000 miles this week. I have had my car 7 years and only have had one coil pack go bad on me. Everything else has been good.


(except the window not rolling up when it was really really cold one time)

My driver side window is starting to sound horrible! It makes a loud creaking sound when going down... Down only though, not up..

Too many drive thru's.

I'm at 192000kms. Throwout bearing is still the only problem I have had.

I have booked in the car to have a fluid change gearbox, diff radiator etc. I am just curious would you guys recommend anything else?

Stone chips or road kill damage.... Choices, choices... I think I prefer stone chips... Can't bear having to clean yuck off the car and replace damaged panels.... Also can't think of taking another life....

Yeah, the actual body damage is something I really want to avoid.

BTW, I eat meat. I take a LOT of lives. But they're all for a good cause.

I've hit roughly 20 birds, 25 bunnies, one possum, one cat and one deer (with the xB) and that's about it. Weridly, the one that made me feel the worst was the cat. Right in front of me, two cats ran across the street and I nailed one. The reason I felt bad was that after I stopped, three kittens came across the street. I nailed dad.

How to you keep track of your "kill" record? May I suggest graphics on the passenger door?

I literally tried to do that. I can't find any vinyl small animal stickers. I wanted to do the "WWII bumber" "kills" thing.

All of the above. Lol.

Used to have a long commute 5 days a week. Spent one or two summers doing canyon runs 2-3 weekends a month. Spent a year and a half tracking. Go to LA at least 3 times a year (one year went 9 times). Went to Vegas. Was my only car for the first 3 years. Mainly though when I'm bored at night I'll just drive around aimlessly lol.

168k miles and counting on the FRS in 7 years. I put around 60k miles on my MR2 when I had it for 5 years (it just got totaled).
