That's awesome milage. I hope mine will make it that far.

My driving is mostly meh driving, with occasional spirited. That's insane numbers.

Only a $100 a plug.

Same for the most part, it's my daily and I do the occasional spirited driving. It has treated me really well over 7 years/180k miles.

So far I've had the below issues:
  • TOB went at around 100k miles, replaced clutch + TOB
  • 1 rear wheel bearing went at around 150k
  • Condensor went at around 150k
  • Air/fuel sensor went at around 80k, this may have been caused by me removing it from the OEM header when installing my UEL header.
  • I have a oil leak somewhere, but I lose very little oil. My metal skid plate has sludge on it but I haven't investigated enough to determine where it is coming from. I checked and wish it was my cam plate since that is a DIY fix, but it is bone dry.
  • CEL for low voltage on knock sensor #2. I removed it to check voltage/impedance, cleared code and it's been fine since. I bought 2 used sensors off of ebay to use if the CEL comes back.

Off topic, but another original part that has lasted forever on this car is my front brake pads. I am still on the original front brake pads at 180k. I replaced rear pads in the summer of 2017.

They still have a little meat on them but I am replacing them this summer just because the OEM replacement pads have been sitting in my garage for 3 years and I am due to replace brake fluid so I figured I would throw them in while I'm at it.
