Hi everyone ,

Seeing as I just passed the 20,000 kms mark today in my Legnum, I was curious as to how many km's everyone else has racked so far with their 8G VR4s ????

I've had it since the middle of October.

Mind you, I am driving up & down the F3 freeway pretty much each day !!

It's my work car at the moment .... but I am looking at the moment at a cheap wagon to get around in during the week ... the servicing for the Legnum is costing a fair bit & it's happening so quickly each time because of the km's I'm churning through ....

Hey mate,

Off the top of my head at the moment it's up to 164,000 odd mark.

I bought the car with 143,000 odd kms on the odometer.

It's a lovely car to drive, but it's turning out to be not so suitable as a daily work car. But I can't bear to get rid of it... it's like my baby now...

Wow,

That's awesome. That's a great example of how a well looked after & maintained Leggy can last for hundreds of thousands or k's. Well done.;)

I've put down 15,000kms since Sept - bringing the car to a total of 50,000.

Every single kilometre driven in these is pure joy!

I'm only up to 6500kms since October. I feel somewhat inadequate, really...

m at 0kms.... still waiting for the car to leave japan! LOL

Well not exactly... a couple of thousand kilometers will be covered on the ship, so it'll have to be serviced mid-way on the boat! *heheh*

For me, I've hit 64000km with a service booked next week (and to have the AYC fluids done as well), so only 5500km done since September last year.

Hey Brad,

Must be you, I have had mine for 8 months, and have just clocked up 10,000 km (car has just clocked over 80,000km)
I will be booking a service for mine in the next week or so also.

Hey BuzzPuppy, where are you sending yours for service?

Regards
Gavin

Buzz I'd also be interested in knowing where you're booking your service.

What is the general rule on AYC? Its confusing to me (Im a car nub) -> is there a set KM's you should get it done or can knowledgeable places just 'take a look'?

I'm unsure where to take it because I bought mine from Kamikaze, who give you a whopping 50% off services with their membership, but then I'm not sure I entirely trust a dealer to service it haha. Kind of wouldn't mind having that outside eye on my car as it were.

Stu, the official recommendation from mitsi is every 9-10km's.

As for KM's, mine had done 110 when I got it, it's done 132km on the old speedo and ummm 2 thousand on the new speedo haha.
