How many miles have you done
« on: June 28, 2013, 01:33:43 pm »
I am doing quite a few miles each week to and from work and with under 300 APEs in the Country I wondered who has done the most miles in their car.

Mine is 33,000 now, I will be reaching my second full service in not too many months (unfortunately for my bank account).  I expect to keep it for another 2 years so it could getting on for 60,000 before I sell it.

    I am at 36k expected to do a lot more in it but have been liftsharing and working at home more so its quite low miles for me, for a change, still when it does get used, it gets used well :devil:.

    Apart from alloys made from pliable cheese (SS, not claw) not got a lot of complaints about the car, touch wood but blimey my local dealer  :banghead: 7 days to get a response for a service booking and to discover parts I had ordered had come in, it's enough to put you off another. ( I phoned 4 maybe 5 times, left answer machine messages and even sent an email  :o it's not like I didn't try, good old Wessex always fail to perform :thumbd: )

    I'm on 25 thing must be about 2 and a half years oldish.

    I want to keep it for another 2 years while I'm at uni, but I'll have to see how they will hold value :-\

    I've covered 8.5k miles on my 12 plate APE, I take it easy & not go over 5,000 rev's while the engine is cold, when it has reached 1/2 way on temp display I drive a bit harder.

    I never give mine any stick until it hits 90 deg, the good news is they warm up really quick within a couple of miles.

    Looks like my car my have a bit more depreciation than most of the other APEs if I managed to keep it another 2 years.   I am sure I will still sell a 60k+ Abarth  :-[
