I am not, one of the regrets I had on my LanEvos.

Last one I had got 6 years and 32,000 miles on it. Got rear-ended by a FrieghtLiner.

I wish I had more drive on it. I did not have it to appreciate in value but to enjoy it.

You're right, there may not be another for sometime(if ever), but don't let that deter you from driving them. I have had this 86' 911 and 87' 930 for years. Porsche is definitely not going to make these air-cooled cars ever again, but I keep driving them. I am on the 2nd engine on both cars with the white 930 needed a rebuild in a couple more years.

My Focus has 182K and I have a engine on order. My point is miles are not a bad thing it just takes parts to keep it going.

2017 Black RS2 bought new at dealer cost on 2018May7. Just ticked over 31k miles. Cars are made to be driven! But I'm not missing the 50 miles a day just to get into work over the last 10 months. Ran through the Michigan UP in fall 2019.
348448

The curvy roads up there are amazing, especially with an RS, along with the light houses, and water falls. My timing for fall color was off by a couple weeks. :/
I've done a Cobb Stage 1, tinted windows, ceramic paint protection, put some black wrap on my front fascia to help protect it and this past summer added a 20" LED light bar to the front. This spring it'll get the Borla S-type exhaust, and maybe the Ohlins coil overs to improve the ride enough my wife might be willing to ride in it. When my Michelin Super Sports are done I'll get the Michelin 18" Pilot Sport All Seasons (March to November use) for additional side wall ride cushioning, 245/40ZR18.
Stay healthy and safe.

Hmmm, I just looked. 11,175 miles.

2016 RS2. Picked her up December 26, 2016. Build date was Aug 2016.

I thought she had more miles until I checked. Retirement and covid-19 has certainly kept us both home more this past year.

^ ahhhhhhhhh..... retirement. I’m gettin’ close.

Unless the weather is bad , I’ll usually take my girl out for drives on Sat and Sun mornings. Street racing is getting very prevalent in my neck of the woods and I’ve wondered what the various law enforcement agencies would do to reign it in. This morning I was finishing up my drive on an interstate near my house when a Dodge Challenger blew around me after lurking behind me for a minute. About a mile down the road a state policeman in an unmarked (of course) white Toyota MINIVAN turned on his lights and pulled him over. Never seen one in a minivan.
