Just clicked over the 100,00 miles in my GT. Still feels as good as new, and still looks the best car on the road (as confirmed by the lovely M) :lol:

Here's my 156 JTD cruising past the 100K mark in late 2011, thought I'd take a picture as a memory.

Place of the moment A120 just of the M11 heading towards Stansted Airport, hands free of course.

100k pah tis nothing!!!!! mines on 192k and still sweet as a nut.
I think 100k is nothing for some modern cars, 20 years ago 100k was a lot of miles, now its not seen as monster miles.
Cheers

Mine's approaching 145k, although I only bought it recently. But one of the reasons I did was that it presented as a 44k miler - not 144k miles. If you look after them, it seems they reward you.

Mine will go over tomorrow! It's sitting at 99970 and it's a 30 mile trip to work....
Daft isn't it but I like seeing all those cool numbers come up on the odometer.
Of course, before 100000 there's the fun of 99999!

I have to say mine feels like a new car too :thumbs:

I'm on my second cam belt (changed every 50,000 miles), original clutch (but not for much longer), have had three wheel bearings changed, and the discs and pads (at about 80,000). It's had three EGR valves and (some would say) obsessively regular servicing (a 6,000 mile oil change and a full going over every 12,000). Front shocks need replacing any time soon.

Well worth the investment. Due to a change in circumstances I shan't be putting 20K a year on any more, so she's in for a relaxing "retirement"...can't say I have seen anything that would make me change from the GT in terms of looks and "charisma"! :)

12k servicing is fine wvwn with selenia oils. My 170,000 mile 1.9 is testament to that:)
