Right now, slightly over 270,000 miles. I think I'm on the original transmission too

205,000

I've got 205K on my 01' 4.4. Runs and looks like new. I don't even bother to check the oil between 10K changes because it only burns about 1/2 quart. I have rebuilt the transmission at 175K, rebuilt the Vanos, replaced only 1 window regulator, many CV boots, a few water pumps, rear air bladders, valley pan gasket,. I do my own spark plugs, brakes, and maintenance. It's been a great vehicle and never left me on the side of the road. Everything works and it's still a beautiful ride.

Well gents, it's been a pleasure. At 138,021 mile, I have officially traded in my 2005 X5 for a 2012 Lexus RX350. It was a love-hate relationship between us, but over the years there were more bads than goods. Do I enjoy driving? Yes. Do I love how it handles? Yes. Do I feel invincible in it? Yes. However, it's the nagging stuffs that eventually took its toll. And I'm not talking about mechanical issues (although there's a few of those). Rather, it's the little stuffs like door handles and washer fluid pumps. Oh well, all good things must come to an end. Thank you again, gents, for all the help through the years. I couldn't have become an honorary BMW mechanic without y'all. Good luck.
