    Which involves me designating a pair to be my lucky pants.

    Well, I'm hoping that to happen, though depending on the missus (who really is nice and is just concerned about the amount of money going on the the car for general upkeep) I may end up buried in it if something major lets go next time. Which is why I'm really trying to keep an eye on the ole' gal....

    my 2.8q is currently on 159k.

    I remember when my old audi 80 turned 200k, it got stuck reading 199,999 for a week then suddenly jumped and caught up with itself. also had an old rover 216 that was used as a pool car at work that had 265k on it when we scraped it, But the speedo cable broke once and wasn't fixed for 2 years when it was doing about 30k a year. Don't think we ever had the cambelt changed either, rust got it in the end

    Audinary... careful of that one.... between 66599 and 66700 (on my old Mk3 Golf) I had the car jump off the jack, windows went crazy and ended up burning out the one motor before I pulled the fuse (at least they stopped then!!!), turned out to be a faulty driver's side switch... so needed new one of those too... and the ABS rings went.... althoguh I'm top blame for the last one (wrong bolts!).... was an expensive month!

    After that, I bought the replacement car with >100k on it ;) It's on 125k and scarcely looks like it's been run in yet!

    Ah! At 66680 I thought, for a moment, that one of the cupholders was jammed. It wasn't, though.

    Car has sailed through to 67k with nary a demon to exorcise

    177K on original S4 turbos. Sometimes, I feel like blowing them up, just to convince her indoors that KO4's are worth it

    Tungstest, titamium, moon dust, brimstone (only for the best bits), dilythium compotosite magnesium tri-carbonite, mmmmagmmmma and tachyon particles. While Tachyon particles don't actually assist in the production of power, the qualities they provide in the regards tolearnces and longevitey of the engine are fundamental to the continual operational of the engine. The longer they are exposed to the operational unit, the more benefitial effect they have.
