Just a quick trip to San Antonio this morning to keep the fluids moving Nice to know it can still deliver the mileage. But it's finally time to replace those post-cat O2 sensors and extinguish that SES light

Enjoy your stay. The weather cleared up for you, though it's supposed to turn sour this evening. Keep those miles accruing. M54 is a great engine.

Hit heavy rain, embedded hail, and pea-soup fog on the way down from Arlington. Couldn't even see the Bucee's sign in Temple. Hope it's cleared up for the return trip tonight.

Ah sucks. Went through a bit of that a couple weeks ago coming home from Houston. Sheeting rain, saw 3 accidents. Hope it's better on the way home for you. Driving in the dark in heavy rain can be an interesting experience. Especially when all the other driver's around are on tires that could qualify as slicks because we get rain so infrequently. Not that they'd know how to drive in rain even with good tires.

Safe travels.

One with the requisite +1 mile, and just a little while later, another that's on the nut. I like to remind myself that major leaguers make millions for batting .400 and I'm doin this for nothin!

The best part ab this story is that the road trips are BACK! We visited colleges in South Carolina last month. We're back in the area tonight.. Hours away from some of the best roads in the country. We're in Chattanooga, TN tonight while I seek locally manufactured bicycles (don't ask). Tomorrow, we will venture back to Spartanburg where we will see about the teen driver's school class held this Wed.

Where we go from here is a bit of a mystery. I have some time off so I am looking for a few weeks of melt away time. We've carried the bikes. No pics of that yet.

Miles = 314715 km

300000km=186411.3 miles

250000km=155342.75 miles

@wpoll; with diesel I think you can do it.

We are shopping for wife's next car: odds are very good it will be F25 chassis with N52

Her e53 has about 190000mi=305775 km but wife's been saving to upgrade for a while.

Gee, you guys are making me sad as those miles pile up. My pretty one has been on two or three monthly warm up runs and has racked up 170 miles in 2021. It takes the flat spotted tires quite a while to get warmed up, so the first 1 mile or so is like they are D shaped. Makes everything rattle away. With all the shut downs in my client list, I seem to live in my home office 5 days a week. Runs are mainly places where the wagon or the minivan are the safest choices. I had a lunch meeting only to come out and find shopping carts had crossed over 33 lanes in the wind and hit my lunch partners car. Rear bumper and the entire drivers side was raked and abused. Two dents in the driver door added to his pain. I got one scratch that hopefully will buff out. I guess I will now park even father away and behind a wall at that restaurant in the future.

The new OE Michelins tires I installed last year - Michelin Latitude Diamaris, are so much harsher than the Michelin Latitude Tour HP that I put on way back in 2013. They flat spot real fast and hold it longer than anything else I own. Road noise is way up as well. Grip and control is much sharper however so that is the trade off. I would have re-shoed the X5 with Michelin's Latitude Tours but they no longer make the rear tires (YOU BASTARDS!)

In case anyone cares, I got 19k out of the rears and could have gotten much more if I had tracked their wear patterns and adjusted the air inflation rate to match my lone driver and driving style more frequently. No weight, no need for rear tire pressure! Currently running 32psi front and 31 psi rear.
