    I completely agree with you... I started to get concerned when our X3 hit 10,000 miles. But, at the end of the day, the cars will still deteriorate and 'wear' even if they aren't driven. Granted, not as fast, but, it'd suck to get into a 15 year old car with only 20,000 miles to find out that all the rubber parts are garbage and need to be replaced anyway.

    Enjoy the car... Not too much, not too little. If anything, enjoy it more than less. These cars are meant to be driven.

    Good advice, thanks. She's already less of a garage queen for me than she was for the previous owner, and I expect it will be that way from now on. But I do live in Pittsburgh where winters can be pretty harsh. Driving through snow, salt and potholes feels a little too much like abuse instead of use.

    I can definitely agree with you there. I keep my ZHP tucked away when its raining, assuming I have the opportunity.

    Nice find. That's about the mileage I bought mine with nearly 7 years ago and have added a little over 100K to that number.

    The more you drive it, the harder it is to put away. Enjoy!

    wow is right - holy low miles

    mine was an 05 and had 32k on it when I sold it

    I will say this - go drive your car. I regret not enjoying the car more when I had it. The last few weeks I had her - I remembered how much I enjoyed driving it.

    Ok, it was my work's firewall. Wow, what a rare sample. How much did you end up paying for it? If you don't mind me asking.
