Re: Who's got the highest Mileage 166 on the forum?

Mine's reached 142k miles but I hope it will go a lot further now I've rebuilt the suspension. Still on the original clutch too and it's not all motorway driving. It had only done 16k when I bought it.

Re: Who's got the highest Mileage 166 on the forum?

142k. on the original clutch,thats' amazing ,because I had a 2.5 v6
with 90k. on and the clutch was so heavy it was unreal! I know
they normally last to 100k.
You certainly getting your moneys'worth out of this motor,one in
the eye for the pro german brigade that love running our cars down!

Fantastic Mike.
I reckon you have achieved the best value and a life time achievement award for dedication to the 166.
Here's to another 142k.

Re: Who's got the highest Mileage 166 on the forum?

My first cambelt cost a fortune, the next was much cheaper and I'm sure the next will be cheaper still, now the main dealers are out of the picture and more indies are getting used to the job. I've aligned mine to 60k services, belts and plugs at the same big service.

The big costs? Well the oil cooler pipe, the suspension rebuild, being ripped off on the heater fan. Oh yes, lots of tyres!

i used to own a chevy astro, an 8 seater passenger van, on one of the astro firums, one guy had clocked up 700,000 miles WITHOUT an engine rebuild!

asside form a slight tick from one lifter, the 166 is still fighting fit.
