~25k previous car
~75k on my e92
~10k on my brother's FJ
~5-10k on random family vehicles

so prob around 125k in sixish years of driving. averages out to just over 20k a year...sounds about right

40k-first BMW
10k-second BMW
20k-current BMW

Exactly. I mean, I've been driving for 12 years and I average 50k/yr. So... About half a million... give or take 50k.

That's not that much.

About 14 years driving for me now. On average, probably 20k per year, I'd say I'm creeping up on 300k.

2005 545i Sport  [0.00]
I got my license in October 2005.

Mazda: 30k
545i: 32k
Jetta: 21k

I drove a work truck for two years. I don't remember how many miles I put on that. And I probably have driven roughly 10k on other family vehicles.

The Jetta is a 2011 and was purchased January of this year. Expecting to hit 23k by the end of the year. I commute to school 5 days a week, including the summers. The Mazda was my beater but it has since gotten so old, I don't trust taking it on my daily 60 mile round trip commute. My brother uses it now to go to and from high school. The Jetta is great on gas and doesn't cost me a fortune to drive daily like the 545i.

Easily over a million. Been driving for 37 years, many of those as a truck driver. I still average 35K+ per year.

As a side note, my brother is a semi driver. His Mack has 1.1 million on it. One vehicle. How he keeps that thing running is beyond me.
