1st off im not a troll. i know this is my first post but dont think this is annoying prick.
i have an 05 tc that i got in october of 04. Right now it has exactly 225600. I live on long island so mass transit is non existent unless your city bound. which i never was nor will be. I used to live in stony brook and worked at bmw in south hampton which is about 58 miles each way. all the while for the entire time i have had the car i have also worked at bar 25 miles away 3 nights a week. I stopped working at bmw and started in farmingdale which is only 20 miles away. i drive alot to say the least. i take alot of cruises obviously. pretty much daily.
Maintenencethe engine, tranny, clutch are all original. in fact most of the car is. The ONLY repairs i have had to make, besides tires and brakes and alot of oil changes, are hub bearings (3 sets) and recently my tie rod ends. I have used mobil 1 5w-30 since the day i got the car along with toyota filters which i buy 10 at a time. I try to change the oil every 4-5k but have gone as high as 7k.
I am on my 3rd set of spark plugs. 5th batch of tranny fluid. 5th set of tires.
Had a major service done at 120k.
I dynod the car(i tune hondas) with 175K on it and it made 132hp. and 126 with the a/c on lol.
Car burns about 1.5 quarts between changes. my oil light goes on once in a while in left turns if im bad with it.
I dont really beat on the car often. its rare i do but when i do it still goes like it did before. i can still chirp 2nd if i really really try too which says alot after this long.
Gas mileage is amazing still. I drive primarily highway (85% probably) so use my cruise control everytime i drive. my most miles to a tank top to bottom was 418.2. Ironically this was only 3 months ago going to an coming back from atlantic city. I was in no rush and used my cruise the whole way and had it locked at 63. best mpg average to a tank was 32.3.
COST well it hasnt been cheap lol. here is everything i have bought..minus the car itself. Including gas:
28,200-Gas...averaged from 26 mpg per tank and 3.25 price per gallon.
1580- Oil and filters. Averaged from 5k intervals and mobil 1+ filter price@ 35$
3000- Tires. average 550 a set plus mounting and stuff.
180- Hub bearings
240- spark plugs 3 sets at 80 bucks each
60- tranny fluid
300-brakes 3 sets of front 2 rear.
i still love the car and am going for 7 digits. does anyone know of anyone with more then this? i have picks of odometer but dont know how to post em on this site. If you know how too email me and ill sned to you so you can post em.
