Thanks everyone! I can't complain and I love my car and haven't had any major issues with it!

Pretty much all original parts in the car, major parts at least, engine, tranny, stock original clutch (yeah crazy, I know!)... original turbo was replaced 2 weeks ago.

For about 160k of those miles the car was Utec Stage 2 with the only mod and non-stock parts on my car being a turboback exhaust and utec. I just went back to stock 2 weeks ago, and I do miss the sound and feel of the stage 2 set up. The car is boring but still running very strong!

im at 106k now, i've seen posts of other bugeyes hitting 250k and such. Glad to hear a local has done 200k on theirs . It's a shame you're no longer stage 2. Mine still doesn't have an ecu tune, and hasn't had one the whole lifetime of it so I figure nce I get a new clutch in there I can do stage2 and be good for at least a while. Thanks for the inspiration

Just normal maintenance stuff... Nothing crazy or that major with problems... had to replace some parts which I think would be typical with the mileage like radiator, oxygen sensor.... replaced turbo at 200k because the center section went bad... but knock on wood everything else runs strong and the car still looks decent that everyone is shocked when I tell them its mileage and that its 9 years old.

Awesome!

Clutches do last a decent amount of time if you treat them well (as is the same with the rest of the car).

I'm about to turn 134k this week on the 05 Saabaru. Still all original as well, still the original tranny, engine and clutch, etc. I've been Cobb stage 2 since 50k. Oh yeah, and my engine ran out of oil at 21k miles (yes, while driving - drain plug wasn't completely tight after an oil change, came out on the drive home the next day).

I've had to replace an idle sensor, other than that, normal maintenance. If you don't drive like an idiot and beat the hell out of the cars they will be good to you in return.

My bug eye is 157k now. I've only had it for 10k miles though. I hope to be joining you in the 200k club, but I hope it's not that soon. Congrats, I guess these cars are really that great
