    I purchased the car in April of 2005 with 28,500 miles on the odometer and now I am right at 105,000 miles. Drove the car as a daily driver for several years at some point of ownership when I liver in a milder climate, but now it is driven much less so I am unlikely to accumulate mileage at the same pace as in the past.

    I too have reduced the annual miles i put on the car from earlier. Andrew is there a way for me to change the miles i put on the car? I voted many years ago, when i was putting more miles. Sandy

    I have tried to stick with my original plan of putting between 500 and 1,000 miles on the car annually, but have been closer to the lower number. Just over 10K miles now.

    Own 3 Z8'.
    1. Stratus grey/red interior less then 5000 miles. One owner car. Drive around 100 to 150 a year.
    2. Black Alpina/tan interior 1500 to 2000 miles a year. Two owners,2nd owner owned the car from 2004 till I purchased it. Miles on it in the high 20,000. Purchased it to drive.
    3.Topaz/black interior. 1500 to 2000+ miles a year. Two owners, 2nd owner purchased the car in 2008 till I purchased it. Miles on it low 20000 when acquired the cat in September 2018. Came with the a great exhaust system. Bought the car to create a Z8 done properly. Koala LSD 357 reared, Alpina euro suspension,BMW competition kit front strut towers (have put this on the other 2 Z8's also) sway bars, the pilot tires and engine work around 440 horsepower.Blast to drive here in Naples. Will be going to a better clutch and lighten flywheel when the car is shipped back to Cleveland. By the way this is my every driver here in Naples. Perhaps I few laps at Mid Ohio or Nelson Ledges (think its been repaved?) are in order.

    Note you noticed I looked for original owners or long term 2nd owners.

    Sandy, this is a new poll, so you can vote here anew

    Pendrod, did you get Paul Allen's Stratus/Red that was for sale in Seattle a while back? If so bravo, that's a gem I'd love to have got.

    I bought it new in 2001 and it now has about 48,000 miles on the odometer. It is a Silver/Black Euro with red and orange tail lights. I store it in a heated garage during Michigan Winters. REG Z8 01

    MilesóI thought I would do more but as the first season with the car closes, only did less than 1000 miles. Am the third owner. First owner in CA did 10,000, second owner 7000.

    I'm owner number 3 - first owner did 48,500 over 17 years, second owner did 1,500 over a year, and I've done a couple hundred over the past four months that I've owned the car. It will end up a couple thousand mile a year car for me after the euro alpina suspension is installed.

    Iím the second owner. Got the car in February with 34k miles and change. Iíll likely add 1,500 miles a year going forward. Have to restrain myself though... the gravitational pull of the driverís seat is strong
