    Who here has the most k's on an LSA engine?

    I bought a brand new SV6 in April this year and it has 25,000kms on it. I bought this car so that my HSV wouldn't add that sort of mileage to the odometer.

    OldMate, what's yours looking like?

    There's a few on carsales around the 90k mark. Like any LS motor, I can't see them having major issues doing over 300k, especially if they're highway kms

    I got close to 17k on mine and it was new Sept of last year. Here is the kicker, I don't even live in the country. Been back like 3 times since then.

    I get a feeling if I get back more often its gonna end up with 500k on it in no time :P

    Nick had a fair run at his it seems but looks like most keep em in the shed :O

    Cant say I blame people, they have a drinking problem and eat tyres like crazy.

    Looking for colder IAT's? we have achieved 11c IAT2 on a 41c day and -8c during winter.
    We have proven cabin AC vent temps are better than GM spec, both IAT2's and vent temps are all on video with nothing to hide.

    I ran mine up to 15,000kms pretty quickly, then bought an SSV for daily use to save my GTS. It's not the fuel/tyre costs, it's the fact there isn't a replacement

    There is a four door(or two), rear wheel drive, LSA engine car most likely coming in 2019 but there will always be something better sooner or later.

    My guess is the SSV is a little bit nicer to drive though. Low slung cars with tight suspension can get old as a daily.

    I just got used to reverse parking my GTS everywhere to stop me pulling the bumper off
