I parked the ur-quattro in the Audi car park at the Donington event last 
weekend, and left a small 'screed' in the rear windows for anyone passing by to 
read what a quattro is all about.  One of the things it mentioned was 147800 
miles on the original engine.
Just before I left, I had a short technical discussion with a fellow MB owner, 
which led to us idling the engine with the bonnet open and fiddling with a 
couple of the bits and pieces.  We were fairly busy - but someone came up to me 
from the rear of the car and queried the odometer mileage.  I said it was 
correct - he cocked an ear at the engine and asked if I was sure that no one 
had wound the odometer _FORWARDS_!

He seemed very impressed that a 150k mile engine could just hum like that. 

300k - here we come!
