    Max,
    I am purchased my 74 2002 in 1975. I quit counting at 500,000. I am active duty military and between PCS moves and TDY, the miles add up 25 years of adding up. Hope this helps.

    Max,
    Now that I have read the rest of your post's, the most mileage out my 2002 engine was approx. 180,000 miles. 500,000+ on the chassis.

    I only have 212,000 on my E21, but another guy claimed to have 650,000. No smoke runs smooth.

    Max,

    Honestly, is that what they told you? Do they have doubts as to whether or not any model from BMW can go 250k, or just the 2002?

    In any case, my '68 1600 daily driving beater has 350,000(+) miles on it (CT, UT, VA, and now CA) and has been through 3 different motors, two 1.6L units (they lasted over 165k/piece)and now one 2.0L.
