You stole the words right out of my mouth. I have an 03 just about to roll over 140K.

worst case scenarios what would you do?

Just bought a 2002 with 125K


- dealer says previous owner didnt keep up maintainence from 36K, but when I saw Trippa @160K and The-IS @ 170K my confidence is strong


Before inspection, I took it to the dealer, he told me I was pushing it... since it has 125 K, and never seen a dealer since 36K (I am guessing maybe other mechanics.. but no papers on this baby) especially with the timing belt... so he's got me worried and I am thinking of giving it a major overhaul any suggestions? any pointers on how I could approach this... I didnt want to drive it before I serviced it - but I cant wait...
  1. How much can I expect to spend (the dealers price was outrageous)
  2. what to get done? (he had a long list)
  3. Which ones first?

If you're located in SoCal take it to LMW.
