I'm at about 223,330 in my 2002 P5. Still drives amazing with the exception of a bit of a grind going into 3rd at higher rpms

I thought about selling to get an st185 all trac. I always loved those. But then I thought about how well the MP3 has done for me even though I bought it with high mileage. I feel like it deserves good treatment in return for its service. Even with all the miles, I trust it as much as any car I've got. If I'm willing to work on it; I might get to hand it down.

Then maybe if I get a million miles, mazda will give me something cool...you never know!

I possibly could have the highest mileage MP3.. My Odometer says 242,528 miles, but I had to change gauge clusters early on at about 50,000 miles due to a indiglo gauge install gone wrong (remember those days?). So add those two together, and my car is somewhere around 300,000 on the chasis alone!

I'm at a shade north of 196k and just blew my head gasket. Now I have to decide if I fix her stock, or take the opportunity to tune her up a little...decisions decisions.
