Been watching like a hawk for the last couple of months, and I dam' well missed it.... the old girl has been approaching 600,000 kms, and she's been round the clock once... I've done close to 300000 kms in the last seven years and when I got her she had 250000 kmsor so on the clock, on a twenty eight year old car, and looked and felt well used ...documentary proof up to 700000kms til 2002 on a 1976 Diesel Mercedes 240.....
So she's just rolled round 600000 kms, - means 1600000Kms- means 1000000 miles... one million miles aint bad don't you think... original engine, gearbox, two clutches in my ownership and one new injector pump..( more than I paid for her in the first place !) and a bunch of usual stuff like steering pumps, shockers etc
bit smokey, won't go more than 120kph, rattles like s*** doesn't start too well when it's cold .....
But I'm sure she's not the only one ...Anybody out there beat that?

Contact Mercedes and tell them. They have a Million Mile Club or some such thing I believe.

Your not quite at 1M miles yet.

1 mile = 1.609344 k's. So, when it reads 1,609,344.0 kilometers, your there.
