Do you guys think I can get this kind of mileage from this car, even with some repairs over time, without the whole thing self destructing? I have only a SRI and test pipe for mods.

yes... there are people with upwards of 200,000.

I had 85,000 on my last 3, and she ran like it was brand new.

I don't think there are speeds on here with that kind of mileage yet.

The longevity of the speed3 is TBD. However, with proper care and maintenance, I don't see why it wouldn't. Seems to me cars are lasting longer and longer now.

People are already pushing 80K+ with no issues. As long as you don't beat on it all the time, I would expect this car to make it to 150K with normal maintenance. I am expecting to keep mine until the wheels fall off, lol.

You might want to look towards the non speed 3's for everything non engine, and Speed6's for engine issues. They've been around longer.

you should easily be able to as long as you keep up on the maintenance. I have put 70k on mine in two years, and the only issues have been those that others have had- new turbo due to bad seals, and a belt tensioner assembly. Other than that, it still runs as good as new!

If you don't mind me asking what did that run you? I currently have a 3 but want to upgrade to a speed3 but I put about 30k a year on them and am trying to figure up cost of ownership and how long it will last.

The turbo happened at 30k miles, so that was covered under the warranty, and the tensioner was at 50k or so and was covered by the extended warranty I bought. No cost so far... other than the toys for it.

runs great.
5k shifts a lot of time. 25k miles only in two years.
Ps its manual, as long as you do the maintenance..should last forever, I'd hope.
