It's a Wink. Time to celebrate and get intimate with her. First, undo the bumper slowly... ok, this could go into a genre of its own...

Congrats!

I think that's to make you check and see if it's the original engine...

Impressive amount of miles, I'm not TOO far behind with 167k on my 2.7t. What's super impressive is your center LCD, that can't be original, is it?!

Torque converter (about 2K), one timing belt so far (1700), 4 or 5 axles (couple hundred each), and many tie rods, ball joints, and control arms but I blame them on the newspaper route I did for 3 years (lucky to get 17K out of a set of tires because of it too).

It's original, but it does fade some times in the upper left corner.

I think it's awesome. It gives the rest of us hope! Any major repairs or just scheduled maintenance up till this point?

Edit: Sorry I just realized you responded to someone else's question below. Regardless, CONGRATS! I hope to have mine for at least that much longer.

I use mine for delivery too haha (Jimmy John's) also a 3.0.

136k on the engine and 171k on everything else. I had my TC replaced as well. Lucky for you, mine has had quite a bit more work done to it, it's actually in the shop right now because my caliper was leaking... lol

I'll get her to 200k

One of the previous owners had the timing belt snap and bent all the valves, the guy I got it from put in an engine that had 90k on it.

I'm guessing the belt was never changed and snapped around 135k

Oh, I didn't include brakes, battery, etc. - have replaced all four calipers over the years. And oh forgot a couple of things - HVAC fresh air flap motor (got stuck open in the middle of winter - no heat), RF wheel bearing and heater core cleaning and flush. Been pretty good to me though.
