IMHO, 50k+ miles in less than 4 years is considered high mile.
Also, if you can void your warranty because of your mileage and not the year of the car, that's considered high too.

Some people considered 100k+ miles are average miles, because they have 200k or even 300k miles cars.
Some people also considered 11k miles is a high mile, like in this thread.

OK, here goes:

1) 40,xxx miles, just bought it about 10 days ago (CPO car and maintenance package so I'm not sweating repairs for a few years.)
2) 2009
3) No mods yet and the only thing I have in mind before I hit the track for the first time with this car is a Clear Bra
4) Seems great so far but hey it's only 10 days and less than 1,000 miles - but a few tanks of gas (I've got to stay out of M-mode a bit more but it's so hard to do...)
5) I'll either sell this in a few years shy of 100k miles while CPO warranty and maintenance package still in place or I'll keep it and run it into the ground for 10+ years (might become my dedicated track car at some point if I don't migrate to a P-car.)

1. 73,000 Miles (Milaged out of factory warranty)
2. 2008
3. No mods
4. Idle control valve at 15K. Now needs oil level sensor. Absolutely love car. Would order new one if not for house remodeling.
5. Probably sell before 100K warranty expires and find low milage E92.

1. 39,0xx
2. 2008
3. Ess Tune, RPI GT-M header-back exhaust
4. Goin' great!
5. I always keep my cars for about 2 years on average. I'll probably entertain my 1st exotic, probably a used Gallardo (NON-LP) or depending on how the new M3 looks, maybe trade into that.

1. 2,8xx miles
2. 2011 E92 ZCP
3. No mods and none planned.
4. Awesome car. I'm impressed with something different everytime I drive it. Which ain't as much as I'd like. No issues whatsoever.
5. Will keep as long as I can. Truly a wonderful and special vehicle. I still have 911 fever. This car has helped it subside.
