Recently came across a S1 with 59,000 miles on it.....surely that’s got to be a contender?

I would think Shooter would better that he's a high miler and has 2 of them I believe at the moment.
Alistair also has 2 and gets about a bit - in a manner of speaking..

Nope, it’s with THT at the moment. Had some interest but nothing concrete. I’m not looking tooo hard as I’m not in a position to purchase until it’s sold.

I have been quiet on the miles this year so I am afraid I am not a challenger for this one.

S2 has slowed down and is 34,000
Coupe is 32,000 I think.

Shooters always going to be the winner with his S4 from my memory (bad).

2014 S4 Plus 8 just up to 37800 miles. So passing 40,00-0 in the spring!!

No drama, no breakdowns, just the ever Engine Management Warning light that comes on at the drop of a hat.... MMC are still trying to find out why.

I sold my 2009 Series 4 Aero in August 2015 with a little over 80,000 miles on it. In that 5.5 years it was off the road for 2 occasions totaling just over 18 months!


One time was in the first year of ownership needed warranty work to try and reduce the water ingress and sort electrics and the second was for a complete chassis replacement which kept it off the road for just over a year. Otherwise I would have sold it with around 110-120,000 miles on it.


On my 2 current Aero's I have slowed down a bit and probably average about 10-12,000 per year between them. My Tesla racks up the most miles, averaging 38,000 per year.
