My wife's Fabia estate (1.9TDi) has just trundled through 300,000; whilst there will be some (many) 300,000 mile cars around, how many are 1 owner?  Wife has had the Fabia from new; 2003, original exhaust, original clutch.  serviced at home since we've been together (last 250,000), service is oil and filters change at 15-20,000 mile intervals, cam belt every 80k.  Whilst the car is not perfect, overall it's hard to fault, not sure what else new in 2003 would have been as good for the money, about £12k.

My A4 has now done 276k. Did the clutch last year as I tow with it and it was only £100. Did the cambelt at 200k and I'm not sure if/when I should bother doing it.

I bought the car for £2k about 4-5 years ago on 158k.

I clocked up around 260k miles in my Fiat 500 1.3 mjd. I owned it from new.
