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.

How many cambelts does 225k miles equate to thats a lot of miles tell us more about the condition anything else in terms of maintenance tips for that mileage?

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!
