I did about 16,000 miles last year as my daily commute is 30 miles.

Debating whether to get a cheap-ish runner for the daily grind, as to be quite honest, I don't want to rack up a high mileage in the 595c.

I plan on keeping it for at least four years, probably easier said than done because I kept the previous 595c for only 21 months.

I am well under allot of these numbers at the minute, I think my current figure for a year is about five & a half thousand miles a year.

In my current Mini I've driven just over 12 thousand miles & I have until July before I part exchange my car for an Abarth Competizione.

My very first car which was also a Mini I drove over 16 thousand in three years so averaging about just under six thousand miles a year maybe.

I just find that I don't really go out just to drive anyway like I used to when I got my first car, there used to be a good load of friends that would meet up in Guild Hall or Devils Point in Plymouth for a drive around & just to chat & show off any new mods or even a new car but that has died down so much now it's not worth even leaving the house now.

But with my Abarth I do plan on driving just to drive really as this is the first car that I really feel like going out to drive around & show off if you will. My current car is a Clubman & that's not really a car I want to drive for the sake of driving. It doesn't have the excitement factor to me, it's just a car used to go shopping in.

With all the road works & repairs around Plymouth at the minute it's more of a hassle just to drive around at the minute as half of the time your sitting in natural waiting to move an inch or so. Once they are all done hopefully be summer time I can be out up on the Hoe with a couple of my car friends doing the old driving loops we used to.

A lot more than the plan ... It was supposed to be 3-4K a year as a 3rd car ... The thing is it keeps escaping off the driveway ...

round 4000 which makes it easy for the insurance but like most of us I tend to find the long way round just to enjoy the driving time

Mostly motorway miles to and from work but around 12000, I am hoping the engine holds up to the mileage as this is my first Abarth and i have driven Honda for years, Was probably a bad choice to commute in but it makes me so happy every time i turn the key.
