Customer came in this morning.

Original bearings, 2008. Still runs like a champ.

This is the highest I've seen so far.

Yup, in new hands now. Engine bay was the dirtiest I've ever seen.

first thing that crossed my mind...just using general figures...

264,214 miles divided by 15 mpg = 17,614 gallons of gas used, @ $3.50 per gallon is approximately $61,650 worth of gas over those miles, or $8,807 per year in gas. Wow!

Pretty sure a DD.

It went for almost no $

Would have bought it in a heartbeat.

It did have a secondary air problem but that's not bad for 250k +

I'll see if he will join.

This is so awesome. I can't imagine owning ANY car for that amount of miles without having some issues.

That's brutal...obviously specific to the area and driving style. I get more than 15mpg combined in my car and gas is much cheaper here (trying to reassure myself that I'm not spending that amount on gas, Ha!).

I bet the owner enjoyed his or her time with the car even if it used a lot of gas. 35k miles per year is not that extraordinary. Years ago, I commuted 600 miles per week and also drove the car on weekends and on trips for a total of about 35k miles per year.

The more I drive, the more I want to be in a car I enjoy. If I drove 35k miles per year and money was an issue, I might look for a fun car with better fuel economy. There are some that might get 1/3 better highway mpg and thus save about 1/3 on gas. But I would not want to drive an econobox 35k miles per year unless I had to.

Great to see a high miles E9x M3 with no bearing issues, or apparently any other significant issues other than a dirty engine bay.

I imagine the owner never tracked the car. Nevertheless . . .
Would love to know what the OCIs have been, as well as tranny, diff, etc.

I wish I had my other cable with me to check max rev's, max speed, etc.. but only had the tuning cable.
