    Just turned 151,000 in our '92 940TD. And that is miles, not Km, Boris!

    I had my ride in to Getty Automotive the other day for a couple of
    maintenance items, and I took his 88 740 GLE service loaner out for the day.
    575,000 kms, guys...drove perfectly. Nothing at all wrong. I think that is
    kind of amazing. The engine has never been apart for a head gasket or
    anything like that. The B230 is an incredible thing.

    sorry then folks - looks like I've got some reliable motoring and catching
    up to do then ;-))
    Who needs an expensive new car when you've got a lovely old beast like a
    Volvo???

    I've been driving an '86 240 wagon, has 360 K miles behind it. It needs
    a head gasket now, which I hope will be done in about a week. This is
    one good car.
