240 D. 1984. Location Bangalore India.

With me since 1984. Everything original at 140,000KM, except for the new Air condition compressor.

Now that I am retired, I plan to join Himalayan Rally 2008 when it reaches India from London.
I am sure, she will do this trip, from southern part of India to Bhutan which is in Himalayas next to Nepal and back.
Any suggestions on maintainence?

141,000. I am the second owner with the previous owner putting the first 136K on the odometer. The car has been exceptionally well maintained as I have a ton of records. This gentlemen spared no expense in the car's care!

Post Vote early and often

Well I voted once using the Mercedes-Benz vehicle I own with the highest mileage. That would be my 1995 E320 Coupe with 117,900 miles (only 307 coupes sold in the U.S. that, the ultimate year for the W124). When the CLK 320 replaced it the following model year its MSRP was some $15k lower. Interpret that as you will.

In addition, my wife and I own a 1967 230S with just over 93,000 miles. It is a very handsome car and drives and rides like a dream. We also have a 2003 ML350 which my wife (primarily) has driven over 80,000 miles in 48 months. This is not a record I know but it is a pretty good number for someone who works only 4 miles from her house. The majority of that 80,000 is courtesy of Mom's taxi service.

I didn't buy the 230S new. I obtained it in August of 2002 at it had traveled87,000 miles at that time. Obviously, I don't drive it as much as I would like to. Unlike my wife's situation, my office is 45 miles from the house and in the middle of the big city. As comfortable and competent as the fintail is I do not feel like subjecting it to that type of driving.

Voted using my highest mileage as well.

'86 420SEL = 206,000 miles
'87 300TD = 102,000 miles
'00 E320 = 73,500 miles

I love these cars.

The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but the wise so full of doubts.

My first Mercedes was a metallic brown 1990 300TE 4MATIC wagon... supposedly had 66k miles when my parents bought it for $7400 from a used car dealer in Castle Rock, Colorado back in December of 2005 right after I turned 16... turned out the car actually had 132k on it, the odometer had been rolled back over 60,000 miles and the dealership had lied to us about it... after fighting through the legal system for almost two years, the dealership wound up having to buy the car back from us and pay us several thousand in damages. But I was very sad to see that car go... the 4MATIC wagon is truly one of the most versatile luxury vehicles ever built. Someday I hope to have another one. Between December of 2005 and September of 2007 I had put about 8k on it, I really didn't drive it all that much due to the fact I thought I was going to be rid of it every couple of weeks for two years...
I replaced it with a black and silver 1982 300SD Turbodiesel, which I picked up from the original owner last week. It has 221k on the odometer and is still going strong! I plan on keeping this one until the wheels fall off!
