    Do you own the UK's highest mileage Astra?

    Ok folks, I'm in search of the UK's highest mileage and also hardest used Astra. To save this decending into a discussion about mileages, can you note the following before replying:

    The car has to be yours, on the road and legal

    1. We have one Mk3 setting the bar at 240,000 miles - can you beat this or do you have a huge mileage Mk4 or Mk5 (company cars included)

    or

    2. Do you do an annual mileage in excess of 40,000 per annum or have you done an obscene ammount of miles in a short period of time?

    With respect, if you fall short of the above than please don't reply. I've tried to collect info from other sites, seems people struggle to grasp that 100,000 miles is less than 150,000 miles and similary, 12,000 miles a year is nothing special.

    Appreciate your assistance on this one folks.

    Leaderboard so far:

    2004 Vectra 2.2DTI - 305,000 miles
    1995 Astra 1.6 Sport - 240,000 miles

    Not actually a car as such but I bought some clocks off Ebay from a mk4 petrol car which had 247,000 !!!

    True mileage or not, no idea ?

    Guessing it's dead now though.

    Its not an astra but the highest mileage vaux I know of is a combo van with 500k on it that was in tv a few months back. Mine has a pesantish 135k on it so well short of the mark
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it

    That's a new record gents, discussion about mileages with 2mins of the thread being posted! Even Vectra C never managed that!

    Anyways, if you OWN a mega mileage Astra then, please feel free to give me a shout. If you don't, then gonnie no reduce this to a discussion about who's grannies mate was on a bus once with a million miles, or how Volvo recently bought back a million mile car and that VW holds the record... I know this, hence I'm seeking some high mileage Vauxhalls.

    Thanks

    That's the sort of thing I'm after, but is that in miles or kilometers? (forgive my ignorance!)

    Cheers
