I don't want to steal any thunder, but a well-known forum member stopped by yesterday to get a hit from our HPWC and spent a couple hours hanging out and catching up. We took a quick boat ride out to the bay while charging and I got to hear about his recent west coast swing to TesLive. He was driving a beautiful green MS 85 with 99,610 miles on it. Great guy, beautiful car that looks as good as new. I asked him how long he plans to drive the car and he pointed at our '52 MG that was sitting next to his charging car, and said "until it is as old as that one!"
So the first MS in the wild will go over 100k miles this week, showing no wear.
Remember when 100k was the useful life of most cars? When engines had to be rebuilt every 30-50k? When there were points, oil filters,and spark plugs to change very 3,000 miles? Congratulations on doing your part to change the world My5bAby! Amazing vehicle and a huge benchmark.
