137,000 or so. Maybe a touch more.

UIM - twice
LIM gaskets - twice
Fuel pump and level sensor

That'* been it. Been a great car. Everything you see above was done as preventative maintenance. I'm very anal about making my vehicles as reliable as possible.

1999 SE

96600 miles (had 74000 when brought on 4/9/04)

No problems so far,

Want to replace entire exhaust system purely for performance

Other than that, just needs a tune up.

Yeah baby

208000 kms (not sure how many miles)

Brakes obviously (they are a wear item)
Supercharger (just needed the coupler, but my rents insisted on a whole new unit, they payed so I am not complaining)
Rear wheel cylinders
Drivers front wheel bearing
Struts (obviously, also a limited-life item)
headlights (not the car'* fault :P damn rocks)
Valve cover gaskets.

All in all, considering I've put 75000 kms on this car, I'm pleased with the amount of work that it has needed, not too bad at all. Especially considering that most of the issues were standard "wear" items, and not failures in the true sense of the word.
