Two Hundred Thousand!
Hit 200,000 miles earlier this week.
2012 R350 bought used with 45k miles on it in 2016 for $17K plus tax title etc.
So far only consumables like oil changes, brakes and tires, one battery, plus, of course, replacing those effing rear air suspenders with good old fashioned coil springs ($600).
Persistent death rattle from one of the timing chains on start-up has been going on for at least 60k miles so I'm not going to worry about it.
Front wheel bearings getting noisy and catalysts need replacing. Steering wheel tilt switch hasn't worked properly since I bought it, replacement in the drawer already for if / when I decide to replace it. Inside tailgate release lever needs fixing.
