56100 miles on a '88 'F' Phase 1 Bx 16v. Previous owner was an old boy and had the car for 15 years, very rarely used it. Mileage is genuine, the car feels perfect.

Previous 16v worth mentioning, '92 bought in 2001 with 75,000 miles on, sold 2005 to Tim2cv with 105,000 (was used as an everyday car for 4 years until I got a company car)

Rene has done 143k miles since new in '92. It had 125k when I bought him last May.

His interior still looks like new apart from those bulbs I blew replacing other dead ones... He'll last another 100k miles atleast unless Fate has something to say about it... LMAO

RIP Rene, 1992 - 2006.
He was the best car I ever owned.

'88 BX bought '96 with 120k only got to 150k. Wot a disaster. Should have left it well clear. But that ride... the only car I've been in where I didn't feel sick and/or cramped as a rear passenger.

'91 BX bought '02 with 16k currently up to 50k. Had to replace a front caliper, it had been so little use it was rusted solid. Bits beginning to go now from being outdoors all the time (subframe, lighter, rubber stops). Still with original battery after 15 years. Just loves straight French D roads.

How long to wait before BX's count as classic cars, I wonder.

Just passed 150k :) Highest mileage car I've ever owned; also car in best nick that I've ever owned. Shows that cars can take high mileage if properly looked after.
