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.

I have to ask Shooter, what sort of work you do to rack up that many miles? Presuming of course it is work related..

For work, I'm a financial adviser. However, most Aero miles are for fun now whereas My S3 and then S4 Aero's were my everyday cars. Tesla is the everyday car now.

The Tesla is a lovely thing for daily commuting, I can imagine its hard to choose what to use for the fun drives though!

It is for Shooter given he has a GTN and an S5 ! Oh and a couple of bikes as well. Also possibly a beautiful Lancia. Nice taste sir.

Hi Shooter

What makes your high annual mileage in the Tesla all the more impressive is it's an electric car!!! I don't know anyone with an electric car who has racked up anything like that mileage so thumbs up.

Is the time it takes to charge when out and about an issue or not (given the mileage you've done I'm guessing not).

Charge times not an issue. For example, today I had forgotten to charge overnight so only had about 100 miles of range. Drove from Shropshire to Redhill and back via a stop each way in Crowthorne. Charged on way down at Membury services eastbound for an hour and had some lunch whilst charging and charged for 40 minutes at Membury westbound this evening on way back and had some supper whilst charging,


It is just a different mindset really.

Happy New Year, probably my annual post!
I have my S1 with about 50k. This was fun mileage not commuting. The Aero club runs to Switzerland and South of France.
It's weird that a 03 car with 50k mileage is through high.
Although now we have young children it's harder to use and my mileage has plummeted.
