I seem to recall the good Doc/Chairman, aka KewlX5, has a bunch of miles on his X, and there may be others up in the high 100k range, from fading memory.

I've run 87 often, esp on long highway day trips where the tank gets consumed in a day; my mpg hwy doesn't vary much, but other than feel good mental health, I have never noticed any improvement with the occasional tank of 91/93, fwiw.

Our '01 3.0 has 82,000 miles, and the list of post warranty non-maintenance repairs can be counted on one hand.

Orig window regs, too...knock on freakin wood.
