Who's got the highest mileage Bimmer?

I was debating whether to put this in the gen automotive forum but there are probably gonna be ppl w 500,000 mile Camrys, so forgetaboutthat haha.

Ok, state your YEARS and MILEAGE for your prized BMW. I think that I'm up there, esp for a Z4. One BMW tech had to check the mileage twice cuz he was shocked that a Z4 could be so high haha. Still going strong (knock wood) and I try to take care of her as best as I can.

*13 years so far
*309,000 kms (192,000 miles)

I built a Factory Five Racing Cobra replica and spend a lot of time in The Factory Five Forum. There was a similar thread that came up there and people were posting their 50k numbers only to be eclipsed by a member that had put over 600,000 miles on his Cobra. He had to put a new body on the car last year because the front of the car was so chewed up from road grit and a collision with a deer.

That dude must be seriously hard core. A friend of mine (deceased now) built his FF roadster in the early 2000's from my sister's '87 Mustang 5.0L LX. Was in his car several times. Not a car for pussies. Just sayin'

Holy crap that's 679,000kms!

Any $$$$ surprises from my mileage (192,000 miles) to yours (I know, not the same car, but just wondering)?

Gives me more confidence. That's awesome!

Incredible to get an ACTUAL high mileage car posted in one of these threads, nice one! And a one owner car not less.

It’s a testament to what cars are capable of if they’re cared for by their owners.

I’m sure the “I’m at 4300 miles in the two years” crowd will be here soon enough ��

TBH, it looks like every other black E90. Driver's side of the cockpit has evidence of over 9,300 hours of seat time .

Remarkable achievement. Petersen Car Museum in Los Angeels - https://www.petersen.org/ - is about to send you an invitation to donate the car as a permanent exhibit.

Can you share what major service was done and what parts were replaced?
