She has done amazingly well and runs as sweet as a nut. Oil changes every 16k with either Selina or Fuches. Itís been by far the most reliable learner car Iíve had. Fingers crossed for everyone.

This is a great milestone.
Out of interest, what have you had to replace along the way to that stellar mileage? (apart from tyres etc.)

Cam sensor, maf sensor, front OS wishbone, front OS wheel bearing, rear NS wheel bearing, brake light switch, starter motor, 2x alternator brushes, shocks. 4x Clutchs (part of the job) 1 fly wheel.

Not bad Iíd say. Donít forget itís learners driving it which arenít too sympathetic!

4 Clutches !!!!! I dont think I could handle watching learners burning clutches, To be fair that is amazing and I can only wish mine stands up so well.

To be fair the clutches  were fine. It was the release bearing which gets noisy to the point I couldnít cope! Fingers crossed for you mate.

That's all to be expected - but no major turbo or engine rebuilds which is encouraging.
Do you use it for a driving school then?
