    For real!!! Never changed brakes so often than since I became a LR owner. It makes me feel special.

    2011 LR4 HSE Lux with 191000 still going strong. I will never sell it. How can I keep my engine in the best shape for long term?

    6k mile oil changes with a quality synthetic.

    Replace crossover pipes and water pump every 65k miles or so.

    Throw other parts at it here and there to please the Rover gods.

    With the acquisition of a new GTI (which will replace my Miata - a bad commuter car) the LR4 will now officially be used only for:

    -Family road trips (1-2k miles per year)
    -Towing or carrying bulky items or lots of cargo
    -Ferrying >5 people or our family + our Bernese Mtn dog
    -Winter storms - including commuting to work for me on bad winter days (a couple of times a year)
    -Winter car for my WFH wife. In non-winter months, the GTI will mostly be her car, and the M3 my car (my wife doesn't like driving the M3).

    As a result, I expect only 3-4k miles per year going forward on the LR4 and it only has 45k now, so I really do hope it will last a LONG time.
