Highest mileage C280

Just curious, who here has the highest mileage C280. I'm just wondering how long my engine will last, so far I have 177K miles and no oil consumption and I use Mobil 1 since I bought it at 32K miles.

So post your mileage and any info about maintenance, oil, etc. I've heard of quite a few over 230K miles, just curious who has the longest lived one here.

2001 E55 AMG
1998 C280 Sport....206,500 miles

Bought on Ebay in 2003 with 88,000 miles on it. I took a risk, but got it for $12,400 which was well below book value. Around 98,000 I had to replace the transmission for $5,500. OUCH. The A/C compressor ceased, as I mentioned in a recent post, plus the engine mounts need replacing, plus my rear left window motor is shot. I love the car because it is so solid and "feels" so great to drive, but it has required significant capital to keep going. I'm getting ready to replace it with a 2004 or newer E55 AMG.

You are going to have a blast with the E55. After driving a little 202 around and then stepping into a E Class. WOW. Its like going from day to night. You wont ever want to go back

1998 C280 Sport
What's up with the C280s needing trannies so soon? I've been thinking of purchasing a 98 C280 Sport from my friend. It currently has 134K miles and the thought of replacing the tranny around 200K miles or close to it scares me from buying one...HMMM...
