Highest Mileage N54
Hey guys,

*Mods please delete if this is a duplicate or inappropriate thread*

So in my mind, I dont ever want to sell my car.
I am sure many of us say that, and I hope that I can stick to it lol.

What I would like to know is, who has a high miler N54? What issues did you experience? Any advice on preventative maintenance etc...?

RE: Highest Mileage N54
Mine had 174000km when I bought it from Kish.

I bought it stock but it was fully modded making 340wkw and 700nm

During the time in my care, it was the normal maintenance, some big ticket items like, water-pump, radiator. I also had a leak from the oil cooler which contaminated the cooling system, small repair but labour intensive due to the cooling system needing to be flushed. Also had to drop the box to replace rear main oil seal.
I ran JB4 and the box was still running strong

Sold it on 204000km.

It is currently doing 220000km. It currently makes 260wkw and 601nm. Yet still going strong.

Most of the big ticket items were covered by SA Warranties, ensure you have a good warranty in placeCartel
