He's excited because it hasn't fallen apart yet! I don't think we quite know what the SVT's longevity really is, but this helps us get an idea

schwowza, that's a lotta miles for an SVT! Is the engine still smooth and quick to rev or does it feel tired? How about squeaks, rattles etc? What's falling apart. You are the high mileage guniea pig, sorry

Good to know these cars will last awhile. I'm not far off the 90K mark myself.

Car still feels great!

The clutch was replaced after 150,000 kms maybe? It has a CM stage 1 and Fidanza flywheel. The car hooks up fantastic still!

The engine still runs nicely, peppy. I've been using synthetic oil ever since 4300 km. The interval has dropped however to about 5 to 6000 km for oil changes instead of 10,000 km.

The coolant still leaks nicely and all I do is replace it every month or so.

Audiophile HU has been replaced by a single Panasonic HU that plays mp3s.

Sunroof still works perfectly. Interior is still immaculate. The driver's seat is a bit flat from so much sitting but it still works nice.

Heated seats still works fine and hot, not warm.

Brakes were replaced several times.

Way back before about 70,000km the DSI manifold went kaput and they had to replace that. Shitty plastic parts. Make sure your ECU program isn't the YRF0..? kind (switching intake runners at 5500 rpm).

Stains on the wheels after lots of winter driving prompted a repaint into black. I also have another set of OEM summer rims/tires.

Hope this helps.
