Didn't know Apple sold the 9-2x as well as Saab. Is Apple going to sue them, too?

Re: Original owners, check in!

I can't really play on this thread but I'll troll a little. I got my car second hand with 4,400 miles, the original owners is a very good friend. One day I got a call from him asking about buying a Mini Cooper s. I had a cooper s and my friend was looking for advise. I suggested to buy a 92x instead, the mini wouldn't have been right for him. The 92x was on sale with an aggressive promotion many of you probably remember, it was 0% interest and $5,000 off sticker. My friend took the advise and went looking for a 92x. He called me from the dealership in jersey to thank me for the advise and to tell me he was buying a new 92x. A year later he is looking to quit his job and try a new career but had a car payment he no longer wanted to carry. I took the car off his hands for the $20,000 balance on the loan. So you see, I'm not the original owner but was responsible for its purchase and later end up buying it, can I get partial credit ? It's shy of 140,000 reliable miles, 134,500 on stage 2.

Delivered on 10/31/04, currently at 58,000 miles.

Long since paid for, but I can't think of a car currently on sale (within acceptable price range) that I'd replace it with.

05 92X Aero bought on 6/30/2005, with 5 miles on the clock (well, I test drove when it had 5 miles, drove for 10 miles, and bought it afterwards).
Now has 54,500 miles.

Re: Original owners, check in!

Bought my Aero off the boat that came into Brunswick, GA in May 2005.  4 mi on it upon delivery to dealer outside of Atlanta.

124,600 miles - just did the F/R brake pads for first time last weekend.  Stock clutch survives and is still pretty smooth.  Does anyone believe if I say "mostly highway miles"?   driving

About 10k miles at stage 1 now.  So weird that a 6.5 year old car at about 110k miles would be BETTER than new with a bit of ECU tweaking!

Re: Original owners, check in!

Bonus points for the most OEM components?

I'm not sure I want to own up to all of the normal maintenance milestones I blew past to this point.  Plugs, timing belt, water pump, and radiator are all stock and probably living on borrowed time.  Changing (fresh from 2005) brake fluid, trans/diff oil, power steering fluids this weekend. 

I didn't do the accessory belts until three weeks ago when they were squeaking like it was raining rats.  The wear they were showing were a bit of a wake up call that I had been putting all this (mostly easy and affordable) stuff off for too long.  Once I have all of the fluids and plugs done, I'm taking the Aero down to a local garage that works on my friend's Mustang to get the timing belt and water pump done.  Will probably leave the radiator alone for now - never had any problems with it that I can tell.
