Man its good to see some high mileage n54's. I bought my e91 with the intention of swapping a 6MT and a massaged n54 at the same time down the road.

Me too. But don't you seriously appreciate how well it drives, since you don't drive it every day? That's how I feel about mine.

I'm a dang cheater. I skipped the brake fluid flush and reset the CBS so when the dealer did the PA State inspection, they wouldn't tell me I needed it done. Because it sits in the garage and only went about 2,000 miles since I flushed in in 2016. I'll get to it this spring, though....I really would drive it a lot more, but it's a real PITA because we have a single car garage and I have to rearrange everything to get her out...

btw my mileage is 54k as of last week...

No longer an E91 owner but now an N54 owner (2010 E61). Not high mileage at all either. Itís currently at 81,250 (just under 130,000km). Stock everything. I am in the process of getting it up to snuff with what I think is proper maintenance. Had the intakes cleaned (they were dirty) replace dthe original water pump and thermostat, plugs and coils, OFHG, oil cooler gasket, all new pulleys, tensioners and belt, and filters. Still have the diff, transfer case and transmission to service (including mechatronic seals) and even though the VC gasket was done I think iím going to replace the whole thing for peace of mind in the spring as well as new vanos solenoids. HPFP was done a ways back won warranty and so were the injectors. They are Index 11 with about 60k km on them so leave them in for now. I donít mind doing the work as itís the thing I do and spend money on really. Looking forward to putting on many more miles.

159k miles. Full bolt on, running 19lbs on original, stock turbos.

Just finished up another weekend track event. Drove the car 2.5 hours to the track, did six 20 minute sessions on Saturday and 4 20 minute sessions on Sunday. Drove 2.5 hours back home. Not a single hiccup along the way.

150K on currently FBO Flexfuel E85 MHD on 135i. Love this car as much as the day I bought it.

142K on 335xi with index 1 injectors. Just did a full cooling/turbo/all oil seal refresh on it, and ready for another snow season.

Wow, I'm impressed. Any secrets or just maintenance?

I always try my best to allow the engine to idle and run for a few minutes after some spirited driving before turning off. Let the turbos cool down a bit, that's helped me keep the stock turbos longer I would say.

I'm definitely on top of any maintenance issue that show any signs and I keep up with scheduled things.

I let it cool but I also always let the RPMs drop to their idle (around 650) on startup anytime the engine isn't up to operating temps. Passengers find it annoying and friends say I'm crazy (and maybe I am). Maybe it's not helping and it's all just dumb luck but I'd rather be safe.

Also, my wastegates do rattle like crazy. Sounds like I'm dragging pop cans under the car. But I've never gotten a boost code nor hit limp mode. I keep waiting for the day to come because I'd love to upgrade the turbos to be honest - but that's the one thing I'm not going to do preemptively because I'm so curious on how long they'll make it.
