Default The 300k mile club!

Do you have this many miles, but not 400k yet? Post here!

Please add some details about your car here. Let people know about the good, the bad, the unusual experiences, etc!

Respect, protect, and maintain complex systems - whether natural or of German design, to benefit from their full potential.

Isn't there one going on the same thing? Did you do a search? (Couldn't resist!)

I hope I will make it to 482,803.2 km

edit: as of Oct 10 only 30 more megameters to go! I could do that in a dozen fort-nights easy.

No. There is a 200k club. BUT THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE MANY MORE MILES ON THERE CARS! Now there is a 300k, a 400k, a 500k, and a 600k club thread to join as you pass the mile marker. So, in a sense you are right. But it's in the details that you are mistaken.
