How many miles does your N55 have?

Hey guys, i'm on here at least once a day....and it's always the same threads over and over again. "Should I get a tune?" "How much HP does "blank" add?". So I thought why not make a fun thread to see how many miles ppl have racked up on their N55 engines?

Post up your miles with your mods and what problems you've had "if any".

Obviously I'll go first.

2011 Alpine white M-Sport fully loaded
18,XXX miles on the ODO
Jb4, CP, DP, Intake since 14,XXX miles
HPFP failed once around 10,XXX miles

UPDATE

Hey everyone, I had made this thread like a year and a half ago. I thought I would bring it back and see where everyone stands today?

If you sold your car? If not how many miles do you have now? What other problems have came up?

I added one thing to my mods since I had made this thread, which is the BMW performance exhaust, the rest is the same. No major problems...KNOCK ON WOOD! Ohh and I got the Arkym front lip and a Duke Dynamics quad diffuser.

Car is at 32,XXX miles and still loving it!

2011 335i coupe fully loaded Alpine white with red interior MT

10,600 miles. i got the car in june 11. went to vegas about ten times this year otherwise id have half the miles lol

full injen intake, with many custom cosmetics. planning on getting a catless downpipe and chargepipe but i am trying to confirm if it will throw a code on the dash before i get that done.

my navigation froze on the 3rd month, they had to replace the CRC which is that section below the DISC area where the rear sensor buttons are under the 1,2,3,4,5,6.

1qt oil had to be added every 2k miles which was annoying as fuck. But everything is all gravy now.

How did you break the camshaft? Did the DP have anything to do with it? Never heard of this before.

Car in sig, 16k currently, mods since 9k miles. Had to have the front differential seal replaced at 15k. Other than that no issues. Weird though as I had an 08 328xi that had a leaking front diff as well at about the same mileage. Must be a poorly designed gasket. Keep an eye on it if you have an xdrive car!

2011 Jet Black non-sport e90
27300 miles, purchased june 2011
Stage 2 PPK and performance suspension installed at 10500 miles, January 2012
No engine issues so far, but am bringing her in soon for a wobble felt through the steering wheel which has recently developed during braking. Hoping it's just a rotor.

2011 E90 Le Mans Blue PE. Bought the car new last November and it's still stock, for now. Just a little over 8000 miles. Only issues have been recently, TPMS keeps acting up and low coolant light came on this morning. I'm hoping these are only because of the colder weather.

2011 E92 Alpine White M Sport.
Picked it up January 2011.
21,xxx miles.

Tuned with JB4 Stage 1 then Stage 2 since around 3k miles. No problems. In fact, just came back from Vegas. Return mileage was 30.9 (indicated). If she keeps performing like this, I may just buy it after my lease.
