Personal Note - I did not receive a single speeding or parking ticket in 200,000 miles. I was once cited for no front license plate ($25). The car has had no accidents or fender benders...good luck eH?

wow! congrats! and nice maintenance summary.
Congratulations! Your car looks great. You've sure got great use out of your car.
That's a flat every 20K!
In my 300K miles I've had 2 flats and 1 ticket.
That ticket was less than 3 months in (1998).
Then I got my Valentine1 and zilch!
Happy Boxstering,

Congrats Rick!

I am glad to see people driving their cars.

Strange on the maintenance. Only four wiper sets in 200K? I go through at least one set per year.
I am stil on my first set of rear brakes and I am approx 90K miles. On my second set of fronts.
I just this year put on my third set of tires (you did NINE in 200K?)
I am on my fourth or fifth battery in 22 years.
Most excellent indeed!! My '99 will probably reach 100K miles next summer.
My year end service was recently completed before the long winter hibernation.
The mag plug had a light film of fines. The filter had five very small chain pad wear chips with the largest being 2 mm across. Looking back at the filter debris over several recent years, I'm noting that the amount of debris (chain pad wear chips) in the filter seems to be diminishing with time so that's probably a good thing. Cam deviation checked in limits.
