Exclamation Who's driven the most miles? - HWS has over 317,000!

I saw an article on MSN about cars driven for a million miles or more.

MINIs have been around less than a decade, but someone may be approaching that mark. So who has the most miles so far?

I'll edit this first post to add the current winner as they post.

I'll start, easy one to beat: My GP has around 6,000 miles.

Just rolled over 70,000. I know there's a Mini owner in Wisconsin who has over 200,000.

Not bad for an 05! My 05 MCSC has about 17,000 miles.

Congrats YMNY, you're #1 for now!

Cheers, GRamirez, I had a small head start! I'm not driving as much as I was in 2004 & 2005, so you have time to catch up.

AW, I'm sure you'll have some travelling opportunities ahead as well.

My game, my rules miles must be on one MINI.

I know Willy has done well over 100,000 in his 03, but he has to post here to claim the title.

Well, it looks like I can claim the highest so far. My car is outside my parents' place (just visiting for the weekend) and it reads exactly 80000 miles.

That's not a whole lot and I don't expect my title to last too long.

It's on a January 2003 Mini One.

Oli

Well, someone told me I'd been mentioned in this new thread. So, I checked.

I'm the Wisconsin guy who, as of today, has 227,000 miles on my 2002 MINI Cooper.

That's no big deal really: - I only have this one car so it gets All my miles, Winter and Summer -
and - I'm an 81 year old retired engineer, so I've got lot's more time to drive than you young folks.
I'm all alone now, no lawn to mow, no big dog to rush home to feed; - I kinda "got it made".

I've always loved to drive - and did it for 45 years before the MINI in Great German Cars.
But, I've Never had a car This Good - or This Much Fun to drive; - just can't stay out of this thing!

I could go on and on telling of the unbelievable reliability and absence of problems w/ my MINI.
But, sun's shining; - another great sunroof day; - and a lot more of this glorious world to see!

'Bye.
