Nice! But not lol




I have a little pride on my 50k 05




The highest Z Ive seen and was confirmed was like 260k on another forum... But I think it was on its like 3rd trans or something and Im sure had a lot of TLC over those years.

I'm still on my stock clutch @ 115k and it's still going strong (knock on wood).

154,000 on my '03, and the same. Always amazed when I hear of clutch replacements with pitiful low mileage - some people are destined for AT's is all I can think.

Closing in on 230K on my '03 (one owner...me )

I've replaced the clutch twice...second time w/the flywheel, which was amazing because the car felt like it was brand new after that (it was at about 170K at that point).

Broken things: passenger window motor, passenger door lock (killed two birds with one stone there), throttle body, rear calipers.

Can't complain one tiny bit about how reliable and well built this car is. Never would have thought for one second back in Sept '02 I'd still be driving it 14 years later, and just how well it would still drive. Mileage is still the same as it always was too.

That's awesome. How hard do you drive it?

Can't say as I drive it hard in terms of like, tracking it...it's just been my normal daily driver for 14 years. On the other hand, I have never babied it in the least. It has been down some pretty nasty dirt roads, has been on 5 storm chasing trips (which means it has been hailed on countless times and driven over all kinds of debris it shouldn't have been) and has plowed its way through 14 Philly winters.

About to rollover 240k on an 05'. Original motor and 5AT...no rebuilds. Still runs like a dream. Kept everything stock. Has simply been a fantastic car.

Just hit 166k on my '05 Roadster

Issues:
Tears in my top (just recently)
Right front control arm worn
Tore the sub chassis
Right window sometimes will not stay shut
Dash peeling in some areas around the audio unit

In other words, dang fine car so far.

Pretty much stock except for:
JWT Pop Charger
JWT Heavy duty clutch + fly
Bassani Exh
Plenum spacer
Uprev tune

Thinking of adding:
SC
Tein suspension
Hotchkis sways

201K on my G, bought it at 200K. It didn't come without a few problems though but its sorted out. Luckily someone else has had to already deal with the issues that hit these cars like all the bushings, rear diff bushing, etc. So far the only suspension issue at all I've found is lower ball joints. Runs just as good as my new 03 Mustang GT did new and I had that car 14 years.

167k on my 2003 Z. Changed the oil, clutch, flywheel, and valve covers. This car is on track to be the way my 1993 Altima was 483k before my cousin got it t-boned.

Default I know this thread is old, but ...

My 2003 Nissan 350Z is over 230,000 and going. I know there are people who have higher mileage then that, but it is what it is.
