Idea Who's got the highest mileage on their 159?

Saw Stephen's blog on "Who's got the highest mileage on their 166 on the forum" and thought it might be interesting to compare with the 159 which has only been going since 2006, petrol OR Diesel, mine's a 2007 1.9 JTDm Lusso Sportwagon, 1 Company owned F.S.H. and just on 95,000 (but looks and drives like half that!) anyone over the 100,000 yet and if so how's it performing?

87,300 miles and rising.
2007 April 07 plate.
Upper near side arm replaced (twice!).
2x air con pipes replaced.
EGR cleaned twice.

Going well so far.
There are a few on here over the 100K mark.

91,000 and likely to break 100,000 by April!

Seems to be going OK other than the tyres wearing badly (per other thread!).

How does the mpg fair with 70k + on the clock (on the 1.9 JTDm) ? Does it get better...and does the DPF still screw things up?

The MPG above 70k certainly doesnt get worse - im averaging 43 with personal bests of 49 - thats all dual carraigeway and motorway driving, with the occasional Jam as i approach Birmingham.
Only ever had one DPF regen at the 50K mark.

Thumbs Up

I'm getting around the 43 mpg mark on the runs back and forth to work, bit of town but mainly Dual Carriageway which i'm happy with, drive it hard though and that drops off to around to the 36/38 mark! which for the weight and size of car is still respectable.

OK my 159 jtdm 1.9 just hit 135K and still feels good. (apart from what I think is gearbox whine)...fingers crossed she will keep going another 2 or 3 years yet...

Anyone beat that?

Was at NJS today for a DPF removal; said they'd just had a 225k 159 in that was still going strong!

I know mines a GT, but does 149k on the original and now REALLY heavy clutch count? I had the slave and master cylinders replaced for free by Northgate Alfa and greased the pivot, but I still have a left thigh like Bradley Wiggins!!
It's on the second EGR that I've just checked and is all good.
I've just done the cam belt, water pump and auxiliary belt and she's running like a dream.
Thanks to various contributors for the help, let's keep it up.
