I've got 70,014 showing on mine...

But you may not be able to see the results of others posts going 110 mph in NJ....

Hope that was on a track.... Man I'm a fast driver, but I would never hold a camera or phone up to my speedo while driving 110.....Yikes...

But does the "R" only do 3000 rpm at 110 mph ?? Not too shabby if it does that...just curious..

Nearly 80K miles. I couldn't comment on the rpm as the limit here is 70mph. At 110 they take your licence away and likely jail you. (Allowed on a track but never been.)

~160,000

I've only owned it for about 5,000 though (5 months).

Car is currently at 104,4xx but this is the most recent picture I have.

Oh and Jeff, this is about as good as it gets on the NJ turnpike during the morning commute

Am I seeing that right? 5,000 miles on a 2006???

If so, please say that you are keeping it... What a candidate for a "survivor"...

You'd hardly get stopped @ 85 in the morning on the TPK. You've got 3 lanes of traffic all doing it, including semi's (I travel between 7a and 9 if you remember the area) It's the ones like our NJ friend above at 110 swerving lanes that attract all the attention

And who was distracted lol??

LOL Used to do 8A to 13..Carteret

(Why I used to just love the opening credits to "Sopranos". Used to tell the now wife...See, that used to be my commute!)

When I used to work for "Nobody Beats the Wiz"...

And, yup... Be a good boy and 85 is fine...Glad to see that hasn't changed in all these years..

^ wow, that many miles would scare me. I plan on selling mine in spring 2012 when it will have around 35k miles on it..

And yep, i used to hold the camera driving my vette at 190mph and banging gears! Just an acquired skill.

Why?? That's the right time to own it. I'd much rather buy a well sorted 60k mile car all day rather than a 35k mile one thats going to need brakes, tires, a battery, and all the fluids changed within the next 5-10k. And pay less for it, and eat less depreciation.

Any modern day car will make it into the triple digits mileage wise with no real issues.

But to each is own...

Wait until you get to replace a $4000 trans, a $7000 engine (15k for the R). Struts usually are gone at 60,000 miles, thats $1000. Hub assemblies, tie-rod ends, radiator, HID lamps, little **** adds up.

I've already changed all the fluids at the 3-year mark and a battery so that should be good for at least another 5

You're not gonna blow up a trans or a motor on these cars unless you straight neglect or beat the **** out of it at every opportunity. I've heard of ONE trans failure on any STR on this board, and it was a car that was drag raced, tracked, and manually shifted all day long. I have yet to hear of someone popping a motor, and I've only heard of one supercharger failure (although that is a wear item), and one snout breaking after a pulley install when it was shaved.

Radiators don't fail on these cars, all the plastic coolant bits, hoses and the DCCV do. I'll agree with you on the suspension stuff, but that's just wear items.

For my lifestyle and the mileage I put on cars it just doesn't pay to pay the premium of 5-8k for a 35k mile car over a 50-60k mile car. A LOT of people have your mentality when it comes to these cars, and it's reflected greatly in the values.

Take care,

George

I agree 100% with this. A car that is never driven can be far more problematic than a car that is well maintained and driven freqently. These are cars, not museum pieces. I would say that most cars today can go 150k miles if they are taken care of.
