remarkably, it didn't completely fall apart when it hit 250,001.
I then asked him for vehicle details and he followed up with:
1990 BMW 325i. just turned 17 last week. had 12 miles on it when i got it in 1990.
Kudos to BMW and to Tom for taking such good care of it.
(I feel a kinship here as my 1993 Acura Integra has 172,000 (and change) on it. Though I've only had it since 2000....)
