With the exception of my 99 M Roadster, all of the other BMWs I currently own have on average 150K miles and the engines are going strong. The reliability of all of the BMWs that I've owned over the years has been outstanding.

I hear all these stories about high mileage on different makes of cars. Are the BMW engines really high mileage engines? I know they are powerful and smooth, I love the mid range power, but getting back to the subject. How many miles have you really seen run up on Z3s? I saw one in an ad that had 90k. Any stories?
Note: Does more horsepower per cubic inch mean less overall engine life? I think so. Thats why I was afraid of the HONDA S2000, great car , but will it be around with 80k miles on it?
